The First National Research Platform Workshop

The First National Research Platform (NRP) workshop will be held at Montana State University in Bozeman, Montana on August 7 & 8, 2017.  The purpose of this workshop is to bring together representatives from interested institutions to discuss implementation strategies for deployment of interoperable Science DMZs at a national scale. The viewpoints of administrators, campus IT managers, ESnet, CENIC, Internet2, XSEDE, and the National Science Foundation will be presented. Sessions of the NRP workshop will also be devoted to science-driver application researchers, describing their needs for high-speed data transfer, including their successes and frustrations. Discussions will focus on requirements from the domain scientists and the networking architecture, policies, tools and security necessary to deploy a 200-institution National Research Platform. All participants will be encouraged to ask questions and share their thoughts on the topics under discussion.

For the last three years, the National Science Foundation (NSF) has made a series of competitive grants to over 100 U.S. universities to aggressively upgrade their campus network capacity for greatly enhanced science data access. NSF is now building on that distributed investment by funding a $5 million, five-year award to UC San Diego and UC Berkeley to establish a Pacific Research Platform (PRP), a science-driven high-capacity data-centric “freeway system” on a large regional scale. Within a few years, the PRP will give participating universities and other research institutions the ability to move data 1,000 times faster compared to speeds on today’s inter-campus shared Internet.
