Session Abstract

FABRIC is a unique national research infrastructure to enable cutting-edge research at-scale in computer networking, distributed computing systems, and applications. It will create the opportunities to explore innovative solutions not previously possible and will provide a platform on which to educate and train the next generation of researchers on future advanced distributed systems designs.

The project creates a nation-wide high-speed (100-1000 Gigabits per-second) network interconnecting major research centers and national computing facilities that will allow researchers and scientists at these facilities to develop and experiment with new distributed application, compute and network architectures not possible today. FABRIC nodes can store and process information "in the network" in ways not possible in the current Internet, which will lead to completely new networking protocols, architectures and applications that address pressing problems with performance, security and adaptability in the Internet. Reaching deep into university campuses, FABRIC will connect university researchers and their local compute clusters and scientific instruments to the larger FABRIC infrastructure. The infrastructure will also provide access to public clouds, such as Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, and Microsoft Azure.

This talk will give a brief overview of FABRIC and discuss ways in which the community can get involved.
