CC-NIE DANCES Project: Implementing Multi-Site SDN-Enabled Applications
Time 09/26/16 09:00AM-09:20AM
"Developing Applications with Networking Capabilities via End-to-end SDN" (DANCES) is a National Science Foundation funded, collaborative CC-NIE Network Integration and Applied Innovation project. The goal of the DANCES project is to add network bandwidth scheduling capabilities to selected high-performance computing infrastructure applications to improve performance and predictability of wide area file transfers. The applications targeted for SDN integration were job scheduling and the wide area distributed file system SLASH2 developed at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center.
The presentation will cover the SDN functionality provided by DANCES, the system architecture, the software and hardware components, lessons learned during system integration, and the outcome of testing the SDN-enabled applications.
