CERN Accelerating science

CERN Many millions of files transfered across continents daily Around 15 Petabytes of data transfered each month!

Data Transfers

Open source software to transfer data reliably, in a robust manner and at large scale between storage systems using protocols such as HTTPS, WebDav, GridFTP and SRM.

Data Management

Delete files efficiently, optimising resource usage by enabling adaptive concurrency, reuse of connections and a smart retry mechanism

FTS3 provides a sophisticated and easy to use web interface for transfer management and monitoring.
FTS3 is the service responsible for globally distributing the majority of the LHC data across the WLCG infrastructure. Is a low level data movement service, responsible for reliable bulk transfer of files from one site to another while allowing participating sites to control the network resource usage
