SDN, IDM, and Research Computing at Duke

To better support researchers, Duke OIT is developing a self-service tool
(Research Toolkits) for on-demand provisioning of storage and compute services
integrated with Switchboard (an SDN provisioning tool developed at Duke).
Switchboard allows users to configure bypass networks both on campus and between
higher education institutions over Internet2 to provide very-high-speed paths
for moving large volumes of data. We will describe how our current work on
Research Toolkits compliments Switchboard's capabilities by allowing
authorized users to access compute and storage resources integrated with SDN networked
connections. Underpinning both these efforts is a strategy of managing access rights
and roles by integrating these tools with our campus IDM system, Grouper, and
federated IDM to enable cross-institutional research collaboration.
