Past, Present & Future: Partly Cloudy with a Chance of Science

Session Abstract

UNC’s earliest network security services were widely distributed and unevenly managed. In 2010 the University committed to a better posture and Security collaborated with Networking to incorporate firewall services into the campus network’s core. Delivering upgraded, reliable service demonstrated several things: the community wanted better security; they would tolerate change to get it; and two traditionally opposed groups could work together to improve the services of each. From this session you will learn our priorities regarding the next wave of challenges: data is everywhere, and the most valuable data is also the biggest. Research is the lifeblood of the University, but moving large datasets can cause a network meltdown. Meanwhile, cloud services have punched a million holes in the standard model of building a strong network perimeter. Future success requires knowledge-generating institutions to accommodate both in order to support their mission. Come hear our ideas, ask questions, and offer feedback.
