Research and development activities relating to the grid have generally focused on applications where data is stored in files. However, in many scientific and commercial domains, database management systems have a central role in data storage, access, organisation, authorisation, etc, for numerous applications. The group is developing standards for grid data services, focusing principally on providing consistent access to existing, autonomously managed databases from web services. By focusing on services, the intention is to ease application development through the provision of composable components. The group does not seek to develop new data storage systems, but rather to make such systems more readily usable individually or collectively within a grid framework.
