Internet2 and NDIIPP: Internet2 Infrastructure in Support of the National Digital Preservation Agenda

Time 10/11/07 08:45AM-10:00AM

Session Abstract

The Library of Congress and the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) embarked upon a test in the 2006-2007 year to develop San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) data-cyberinfrastructure for use as a trusted data center component of the Library of Congress's National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program (NDIIPP). During this test phase, both organizations realized that for long-term data transmission for digital preservation, the connectivity between each organization via the Internet2 Abilene infrastructure would be critical to the success of this initiative. After preliminary transfer tests, the network optimization and monitoring for Internet2 connectivity became one of the deliverables as a best practice for use in the NDIIPP community. This session will discuss what was accomplished to provide the appropriate network monitoring and optimization for large-scale transfers of collections housed in the Library of Congress's American Memory Collection to the NDIIPP demonstration data-grid that was developed at San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) for the purposes of this transfer and storage test.
