NDGF-T1 is transferring the dCache storage to a model whese dCache is no longer run by the sysadmin but run as a normal user. This enables centralized management of the software versions and their configs.
This automation is done with 3 roles in Ansible and a playbook to tie them together.
The end result is software running in an environment much like the cloud.

Desired length 10 minutes
