Operating Innovative Networks

ChairsAndrew Lee [leea AT]

Advancements in Big Science and the amount of data that is generated and requires transport, such as from an instrument like the LHC to a computing cluster, have forced those of us who provide that transport to develop innovative ways to help scientists accomplish their tasks. New network architectures allow faster data movement while maintaining the security posture for the rest of a campus or other facility

This workshop, which will run all day, will represent the 4th in a series of similar training about concepts in networking that revolve around large data transfers and follows the perfSONAR training at APAN 41 in Manila. The workshop will build on the "Operating Innovative Networks" (OIN) training series that has been developed with ESNet, Internet2 and IU. In the first half, we will examine the architecture of Science DMZs, as well as security concepts. In the second half we will discuss Software Defined Networking (SDN), its deployment strategies and usage examples as well as how it relates to Science DMZs. We will also touch briefly on Data Transfer Nodes (DTNs) and perfSONAR and their roles in a Science DMZ.

This workshop will be valuable to those who want to learn more about Science DMZs and how to implement them to support the large data transfers that scientists are trying to accomplish across their networks.

Target AudienceNetwork engineers interested in topics such as Science DMZs, DTNs, and SDN
