Enstore is the mass storage system implemented at Fermilab as the primary data store for large data sets. Enstore provides access to data on tape or other storage media both local to a user's machine and over networks. It is designed to provide high fault tolerance, availability and scalability sufficient for the current Fermilab and its collaborators needs, as well as easy administration and monitoring. It uses a client-server architecture which provides a generic interface for users and allows for hardware and software components that can be replaced and/or expanded. Enstore is currently integrated with dCache front end which makes up a Hierarchical Data Storage System.

This document describes these tools, how to use them to move data to and from storage media, and how to monitor the progress of jobs through the system.
