DIRAC is the interware for building and operating large scale distributed computing systems. It is adopted by multiple collaborations from various scientific domains for implementing their computing models.
DIRAC provides a framework and a rich set of ready-to-use services for Workload, Data and Production Management tasks of small, medium and large scientific communities having different computing requirements. The base functionality can be easily extended by custom components supporting community specific workflows. A single DIRAC service can provide a complete solution for the distributed computing of one, or multiple collaborations. The Workload Management System provides a transparent, uniform interface for managing computing resources and complex workflows. The Data Management System offers several tools to ensure data handling operations. DIRAC put special emphasis on the large scale data productions and datasets management.
This contribution will highlight DIRAC's current, upcoming and planned capabilities and technologies. Examples include, but are not limited to, adoption of security tokens and interactions with Identity Provider services, integration of Clouds and High Performance Computers, interface with Rucio, improved monitoring and deployment procedures.
