Chirp is a distributed file system specifically designed for the wide area network, and developed by the University of Notre Dame CCL group. We describe the design features making it particularly suited to the Grid environment, and to ATLAS use cases. The deployment and usage within ATLAS distributed computing are discussed, together with scaling tests and evaluation for the various use cases.
