Fermilab, in collaboration with the DESY laboratory in Hamburg, Germany, has created petabyte scale data storage infrastructure to meet the requirements of experiments to store and access large data sets. This infrastructure provides a data throughput sufficient for transferring data from experiments' data acquisition systems. It also allows access to data in the Grid framework. Currently the total amount of data stored in permanent storage is more than 400 TB and an average daily transfer rate is about 5 TB, with maximum at 7.5 TB. The Fermilab data storage infrastructure consists of the following major storage and data transfer components:
- enstore mass storage system - dCache distributed data cache - ftp and Grid ftp for primarily external data transfers
