We have introduced support for the iRODS protocol (refer to our documentation) in collaboration with iPlant at the BIO5 Institute. Below two excerpts from the iPlant Collaborative Press Release.
iRODS is widely used by thousands globally to manage their data in a variety of disciplines, including hydrology, astronomy, engineering, and life sciences. Thus, the new Cyberduck plug-in effort led by iPlant will have a global impact to improve convenience of data transfer for scientists working with large-scale data.
Using Cyberduck, Barthelson was able to download a 2.8 Gigabyte file in 3 minutes, transferring the content at a rate of approximately 1 Gigabyte per minute into iPlant’s Data Store, which provides a reliable and redundant repository for storage, analysis and sharing of scientific data.
