Abstract: The ATLAS experiment, based at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, Geneva, is developing a grid-based system capable of supporting it's data analysis activities which require the processing of data volumes of the order of petabytes per year. The distributed analysis system aims to bring the power of computation on a global scale to thousands of physicists by enabling them to easily tap into vast grid computing resources for their analysis activities whilst shielding them from the complexities of the grid environment. This paper outlines the distributed analysis model, the ATLAS data management system, and the multi-pronged ATLAS strategy for distributed analysis in a heterogeneous grid environment. Various frontend clients and backend submission systems will be discussed before concluding with a status update of the system.
