Next Generation R&E Ecosystem: Report on Workshops at University of Michigan

Time 10/16/18 11:30AM-11:50AM

Room Pacifica Ballroom 10/11/12

Session Abstract

In June of 2018, the University of Michigan and Internet2 hosted two workshops in Ann Arbor, MI. The two workshops were a Network Automation workshop and a Network Connectivity to Cloud Providers workshop.

The the purpose of the Network Automation workshop was to discuss of the best practices for US universities and regional networks to automate network operations using orchestration software (e.g. Ansible, Salt) and single source of authority data sets (e.g. NetBox, Git).

The goal of Network Connectivity to Cloud Providers workshop was to identify current design requirements for connectivity to cloud providers, including support for data intensive science, migrating administrative functions to the cloud, and use of cloud-based third party vendors, to analyze potential connectivity solutions, and (potentially) to recommend best practices back to the community and Internet2.

A high-level summary of the outcomes of the workshops will be provided during this session.
