This presentation will summarise the deployment experience gained with POOL during the first larger LHC experiments data challenges performed. In particular we discuss the storage access performance and optimisations, the integration issues with grid middleware services such as the LCG Replica Location Service (RLS) and the LCG Replica Manager and experience with the POOL proposed way of exchanging meta data (such as File Catalog catalogue entries) in a de-coupled production system.
