Pacific Research Platform - Scaling an Accelerator for Discovery

Time 10/16/18 03:10PM-03:30PM

Room Pacifica Ballroom 10/11/12

Session Abstract

This session will discuss the PRP architecture and operations over CENIC and Pacific Wave, the technical challenges faced and successes realized by the PRP during its first three years of activities, explore the emerging near-term and longer-term PRP capabilities, plans for expansion, as well as an invitation to collaborate as we explore scaling from a regional network to national and international models:

PRP -- Extending the ESnet Science DMZ model to a regional scale
o PRP: CENIC + Pacific Wave, and partner R&E networks
o DTN architecture
o Network and disk-to-disk performance measurement

Science Engagement & Case Studies -- Socio-technical engineering among science, HPC, network, and IT, with a selection of PRP case-studies driving the direction of the PRP

PRP dev -- A testbed incorporating security, IPv6, SDN/SDX, cooperating research groups
o Nautilus: PRP implementation of Kubernetes -- virtualized, federated access to distributed cluster resources including Rook-orchestrated Ceph for persistent storage and GPU-computing.
o Super-Channels / Super-Facilities
o Interdomain collaborations

Considerations -- scaling to national and international models
