perfSONAR is an infrastructure and a set of services for network performance monitoring, facilitating the ability to make and exchange performance measurements in order to solve end-to-end performance problems on paths crossing several networks, and enable network-aware applications. There are over 700 publicly registered perfSONAR toolkit deployments worldwide, and the adoption is continuing to grow rapidly within data-intensive application communities.

I am pleased to honor Joel Brownstein from the University of Utah as the Globus User of the Month for December 2013. Professor Joel Brownstein is the data archivist of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey-IV (SDSS-IV), which is the continuation of the SDSS-I, -II, and -III surveys.

The SDSS-I, -II, and -III surveys have together amassed hundreds of terabytes of data from millions of stars throughout the Milky Way, and distant galaxies and quasars that allow us to study the structure and evolution of galaxies, the nature of dark energy and dark matter, and the cosmological history of the universe.

August 6, 2013 - 5:00 CDT to August 8, 2013 - 5:00 CDT

The Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) is hosting a workshop that focuses on the management of large datasets throughout their lifetime. From job prep, to jobs, to analysis, the workshop will help researchers better deal with big data from acquisition to publication.

Rachana Ananthakrishnan will be presenting on software-as-a-service for research data management, highlighting user success stories for the Globus Online file transfer service and describing future plans for metadata services.
