New Year's Reflections from Globus Co-Founder Ian Foster


Happy New Year!

As 2017 fades into memory, I thought it might be interesting to reflect a bit on where we’ve been and where we plan to be this year. Here are some things I’ve observed recently and a few that I plan to keep an eye on.

Globus, Science DMZ provide new architecture to meet demand for accessing shared data

A team of networking experts from the Department of Energy’s Energy Sciences Network (ESnet), with the Globus team from the University of Chicago and Argonne National Laboratory, has designed a new approach that makes data sharing faster, more reliable and more secure. In an article published Jan. 15 in Peer J Comp Sci, the team describes their “The Modern Research Data Portal: a design pattern for networked, data-intensive science.”

For research data to be truly useful, it must be easy to access, share and manage without requiring expensive custom infrastructure. What organizations need is turnkey storage that won't break the bank, with a unified interface for fast, reliable data transfer and sharing.

For more than 50 years, HPC has supported tremendous advances in all areas of science. But densely-populated communities can more easily support subscription-based commodity networks and energy infrastructure that make it more affordable for urban universities to engage globally. Research centers based in sparsely-populated regions are extremely disadvantaged. HPCwire describes how researchers in far-flung places are dealing with these challenges, and how Globus facilitates fast, reliable file transfer, irrespective of distance and network conditions.

This is the 4th article in our Storage Innovation blog series. We’ve been discussing on-premise storage in the past two posts, and in the last post I talked about the pros and cons of “rolling your own” storage. In this post, we’ll have a discussion with Linda Zhou, Director of HPC and Life Sciences Solutions at HGST, about turnkey private cloud storage systems and the benefits of approaching storage this way.

A Conversation with HGST HPC Director Linda Zhou

[Steve Tuecke] To begin with, Linda, give us a quick summary of what we need to know about HGST.

ESnet’s Petascale DTN Project Speeds up Data Transfers between Leading HPC Centers

The Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Science operates three of the world’s leading supercomputing centers, where massive data sets are routinely imported, analyzed, used to create simulations and exported to other sites. Fortunately, DOE also runs a networking facility, ESnet (short for Energy Sciences Network), the world’s fastest network for science, which is managed by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
