dCache is a distributed storage solution. It organizes storage across computers so the combined storage can be used without the end-users being aware of precisely which computer stores their data; end-users simply see a large amount of storage. Because end-users need not know on which computer their data is stored, their data can be migrated from one computer to another without any interruption of service. This allows dCache storage computers to be taken out of service or additional machines (with additional storage) to be added without interrupting the service the end-users enjoy.

Changes

HTTP Basic Authentication was added for WebDAV. The latency for server side srmCopy was reduced. The ACL admin service is now integrated into pnfs manager. Wildcards can now be used in pool manager commands. SRM client's overwrite request can be honored without having to enable overwrite in other doors. Pool to pool transfers use HTTP rather than DCAP. A pluggable pool selection algorithm and a new write pool selection algorithm were added. Webadmin has been updated.
