REDDnet Development, Deployment and Operations
The Research and Education Data Depot Network (REDDnet, 'ready net') wide area storage network that is being created to support data intensive collaboration among researchers, teachers, and students on Internet 2 and other research networks. Launching in 2007 with funding from the NSF, it will provide its users with at least 700 TB of 'work space' in disk storage and 200 TB of tape storage for more long term and archival purposes. It uses Logistical Networking (LN) middleware, based on the Internet Backplane Protocol (IBP), in order to maximize easy and scalable deployment, freedom and flexibility for application developers, and sustainable interoperability. This one day REDDnet Development, Deployment and Operations meeting will bring together leaders from REDDnet's different application communities (e.g. Particle Physics, Geospatial Data, etc.), technical support team, software developers, and LN researchers in order to showcase this new national cyberinfrastructure's capabilities, share user experiences, and chart the directions for the future development of the software technology and the growth of the infrastructure.
