The iPlant Data Store is accessible by several means. These include iPlant's Discovery Environment, a dedicated web interface called DAVIS, a stand-alone application, command-line tools, and a couple of different application programming interfaces (for those who program).
By having a unified place to store your data, it becomes easy to share data between your personal computer and iPlant's tools, among your collaborators, and even with other web-based systems.
By having your data stored in iPlant's data store, you have access to reliable and redundant storage, as much as your project needs.
iPlant's Data Store is built using iRODS, a separate NSF-funded project. iRODS brings years of experience managing all kinds of data, including very large data sets similar to what is being generated by current high-throughput biological technologies, such as NextGen Sequencing.
