The eResearch Big Picture
|Peter Elford, RDSI||Context for day, what is in/out scope|
|0930-1030||Science DMZ (1)||Brian Tierney, ESnet|
|1100-1230||Science DMZ (2)||Brian Tierney, ESnet||Motivation for and key elements of Science DMZ|
|1330-1430||Node Network Architecture||Jake Carroll, Jason Andrade, QCIF||Case Study: QCLOUD – Example of an RDSI Node, integrated with NeCTAR Research Cloud|
|1430-1500||Workshop + Discussion||Peter Elford, RDSI (Moderator)||Open Forum discussion on how Science DMZ can be deployed within a Node based on previous talks, what issues need to be resolved ?|
|1530-1600||AARNet 4 + RDSI||David Wilde, AARNet||How the AARNet 4 VPN/virtualisation capabilities will be implemented to support RDSI Nodes|
|1600-1630||Science DMZ Pilot||Chris Myers, Versi||Report on Science DMZ Pilot|
Technical staff that provide support to the research community, particularly those involved in projects or activities related to deploying Big Data and high
performance/high volume network and compute services such as those funded by RDSI and NeCTAR.
Ideally suited to anyone involved in an RDSI/NeCTAR Node, but extremely relevant to staff at individual institutions as well.
