Data Grid: Storage Resource Broker. Mike Smorul <email@example.com>. SRB Overview. Developed at San Diego Supercomputing Center.
An MCAT fragment coming down due to network or system failure does not bring the entire SRB down. The other sections continue to provide the server leaving only one section temporarily inaccessible.
This enables reducing network latency, thus may enable an overall improvement in performance when an SRB network spans across large geographical distance.
