The iRODS Consortium brings together enterprise and research organizations, universities, and government agencies to ensure the sustainability of iRODS, an open source data management framework. The iRODS Consortium fields a team of software developers, application engineers, and support staff housed at RENCI at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Each year, the Consortium hosts the iRODS User Group Meeting, a symposium that draws 100+ participants to share iRODS technologies, best practices and case studies.
