Storage Resource Broker

The Storage Resource Broker is client-server middleware that provides a uniform interface for connecting to heterogeneous data resources over a network and accessing replicated data sets. It, in conjunction with the Metadata Catalog (MCAT), provides a way to access data sets and resources based on their attributes and/or logical names rather than their names or physical locations.
