Building a Data Transfer Node

Time 07/10/11 01:00PM-05:00PM

Session Abstract

The most important component of a "Science DMZ" is a properly designed and tuned "Data Transfer Node", or DTN. This tutorial will give an overview of the Science DMZ, and why it is important. It will then go into details on building a DTN. A DTN with plenty of disk bandwidth to fill a 10G pipe can easily be built for under $15K. Topics to be covered include hardware selection criteria, RAID configuration and tuning, network configuration and tuning, and other host tuning.

For more details on the Science DMZ concept, see the talk from the last Joint Techs:
