ESnet Takes Science DMZ Architecture to Pennsylvania R&E Community


Jason Zurawski of ESnet’s Science Engagement team will lead a March 4 webinar on “Upgrading Campus Cyberinfrastructure: An Introduction to the Science DMZ Architecture” for research and education organizations in Pennsylvania.

Zurawski will introduce ESnet’s Science DMZ Architecture, a network design pattern designed to streamline the process of science and improve the outcomes for researchers. Included in this design are network monitoring concepts via the perfSONAR framework, as well as functional components used to manage security and manage the transfer of data. This design pattern has roots in high speed networks at major computing facilities, but is flexible enough to be deployed and used by institutions of any size. This solution has been successfully deployed on numerous campuses involved in the NSF CC-IIE and CC-NIE programs, and is a focus area for the upcoming CC-DNI program.

The workshop is presented by the Keystone Initiative for Network Based Education and Research (KINBER), a not-for-profit membership organization that provides broadband connectivity, fosters collaboration, and promotes the innovative use of digital technologies for the benefit of Pennsylvania.
