Abstract: Dynamic data distribution is a key factor in Grid computing. The DMC project, aiming at improving collaborative research by allowing data to be shared more easily across applications cooperating within a federated environment, is described. DMC is the data management system chosen by the Planck Satellite Survey Community, and specifically by the two Data Processing Centers, as a common infrastructure for the data handling applications being developed. Particular reference is here made to the design of the model, the data structures and to the portability of the Planck experience to other pipeline-oriented distributed environments, with particular reference to Grid-enabled systems.
