Data management is one of the most fundamental aspects in a Data Grid where potentially Tera- or Petabytes are stored in distributed sites. Although there are many solutions to data management, mass storage systems and file system features are among the most dominant ones. This minisymposium will take out a few of these aspects and discuss them in more detail.
