General CERN IT projects

The XROOTD project aims at giving high performance, scalable fault tolerant access to data repositories of many kinds.
The typical usage is to give access to file-based ones.

It is based on a scalable architecture, a communication protocol, and a set of plugins and tools based on those. The freedom to configure it and to make it scale (for size and performance) allows the deployment of data access clusters of virtually any size, which can include sophisticated features, like authentication/authorization, integrations with other systems, WAN data distribution, etc.

Recently, starting from the fact that xrootd is just the name of one
constituting block (the data access daemon), the name "Scalla" is being sometimes used to refer to the whole software suite. Its meaning is "Structured Cluster Architecture for Low Latency Access".

The URL for information about the project is:


This Savannah point of access is supposed to grow and constitute a point of aggregation for the various needs of people willing to use the platform for their data access needs in the HEP community. This will include access to updated source code and to the documentation, as well to any other kind of information related to the project.
