From Network Administrator to Domain Scientist: Challenges with Creating Usable High Speed Networks

Time 10/18/17 09:20AM-09:50AM

Room Grand Ballroom A

Session Abstract

It can take a domain scientist weeks to set up a circuit, meeting for hours with IT administrators to figure out exactly what is needed, approvals from their own campus along with the remote campuses to set up a simple circuit to transfer data between campuses on an ongoing basis. Talking about networks may as well be a foreign language to many domain scientists. As such, we need to make it easier for domain scientists to allocate and configure resources for scientific applications without needing to to understand the details of bandwidth, circuits, and port numbers. This session will discuss the challenges in supporting domain science applications across long distances and multiple management domains. We will discuss the AtlanticWave/SDX project and how it approaches this problem, making it possible for a domain scientist with little networking knowhow to create paths across an intercontinental network, while making network administrators' lives easier in the process. We will focus on the tools being developed to manage the network, along with a practical demonstration spanning multiple SDN switches.
