CMS Connect is a service designed to provide a Tier3-like environment for condor analysis jobs and enables users to submit to all resources available in the CMS Global Pool. It is a complementary service to CRAB 3:
For users, interacting with CMS Connect is similar to interacting with a private cluster or e.g the LPC CAF, the main difference is that jobs do not run on a local pool but are sent to Tier Resources available in the CMS Global Pool, hence it does not provide a shared-filesystem infrastructure or include your CERN/FNAL AFS Home area for example.
