North Carolina at Greensboro Campus CyberInfrastructure Plan
The University of North Carolina at Greensboro recognizes an increasing need for CyberInfrastructure (CI) capabilities to support growing scientific research computational and data storage needs. This CyberInfrastructure plan outlines the set of CI initiatives for the University’s Information Technology Services (ITS) division to support these growing needs in alignment with both divisional and University strategic plans. The plan is divided into 3 primary areas:
- Core Infrastructure
- Collaboration Enablement
- Cloud Computing Infrastructure
Core Infrastructure (1) is the foundational component of University computing. Collaboration Enablement (2) is the key technology components supporting the success of collaborative research both within and outside the University. Cloud Computing Infrastructure (3) could be categorized as (1) and/or (2), but the extent and rapid acceleration of cloud development merits treatment of this area as its own entity.
Information Security is a critical component to the CyberInfrastructure Plan. In addition to existing policies and procedures, additional security requirements and guidelines will be developed by the Chief Information Security Officer to address security considerations for high speed data transfers within the Science DMZ.
The UNC Greensboro Information Technology Services division is responsible for operating and maintaining the campus CyberInfrastructure identified in this plan under the direction of the University Chief Information Officer.
