This page is about the CVMFS service at RAL.

As described in the official documentation, CVMFS provides a scalable and reliable software distribution service. It is implemented as a POSIX read-only file system in user space, where files and directories are hosted on standard web servers as single source of data, and mounted in the universal namespace /cvmfs.

RAL maintains one of these single sources of data, or Stratum-0, for some communities:

  • EGIS
  • IRIS

This documentation is for the VO content managers.
