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.


This release introduces caching of ID mapping results in NFSv4. It adds Basic Auth support in the WebDAV interface, and nsswitch and krb5 plugins for gplazma2. ACL cell has been merged into PnfsManager. Support has been merged for legacy commands in PoolManager. Selectable and plugable selection algorithms have been added to the partition manager. p2p uses HTTP instead of DCAP.
