Enstore is a software tool designed for managing large-scale data storage systems. It was originally developed by the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory for managing the data produced by scientific experiments and simulations.
Enstore provides a scalable, high-performance, and fault-tolerant data storage infrastructure, capable of handling petabytes of data. It supports both tape and disk storage systems, and provides features such as data replication, backup and recovery, and data migration. Enstore also includes a number of tools for managing and monitoring the storage system, including tools for data movement, data indexing and querying, and user authentication and authorization.
Enstore is widely used in scientific research and high-performance computing environments, where large-scale data storage and management are critical to the success of research projects. It is an open-source software tool, meaning that it can be freely downloaded and used by anyone.
