The basics of CI support are still in the nascent stages of implementation and operation for a large population of funded CC* awardees. This workshop will offer the basic knowledge to establish the concepts of a Science DMZ, data transfer components, and network monitoring. Attendees will work with community leaders to better understand, build, and support CI to support scientific use cases. CC* awardees that are new to the research community are encouraged to attend.
Once a site has established the basics of technology to support science, usability by the target user communities is the next step. New hardware and software are only useful if they can be integrated into the workflow of the groups that populate a campus environment. This workshop will build upon the concepts introduced in the introductory material to fully integrate notions of the Science DMZ and data transfer into functional scientific infrastructure to benefit campus users. Attendees will learn, and create, the components of a modern research data portal (MRDP) – a set of software components that operate on top of capable CI hardware.
CC* Community-Wide Data Mobility Exhibition (Aug 2019 through Sept 2020)
All community members, not just those participating in the workshop components, are encouraged to patriciate in an exciting and beneficial data mobility exhibition. Using reference data sets, and existing campus CI components, participants will download, measure, and potentially improve their scientific data movement capabilities. This event will begin in August of 2019, and will extend for a full year (through the CC* 2020 PI meeting). Prior to the 2019 CC* PI meeting, participants will:
- Describe their network and data architecture
- Perform a series of downloads of reference science data sets
- Register their results with the workshop organizers
- For those that want to accelerate their results, 1:1 assistance, via the Engagement and Performance Operations Center (EPOC) is available: firstname.lastname@example.org
At and after the 2019 NSF CC and CICI PI meeting, through Sept of 2020, participants will:
- Continue to perform the steps/activities above
- Discuss results and strategies via the CI Engineering list: email@example.com
- Assist in writing a report for the 2020 CC and CICI PI Meeting
