dCache, some insights
                    Patrick Fuhrmann, DESY

Following the recommended topic list of this HEPiX session, the
presentation will touch on dCache issues important for site admins
and local storage system operators to decide whether dCache suits
their needs. Though no technical details will be exposed, the talk
will comment on areas like flexibility of the tertiary storage
connection, scalability in terms of total size, data transfer rates
and number of transactions per time unit. Moreover I will briefly
discuss data transport protocols, security, operation issues as
well as packaging and support.
