ESnet to Demonstrate Science DMZ as a Service, Create Virtual Superfacility at GENI Conference


At the twenty-second GENI Engineering Conference being held March 23-26 in Washington, D.C., ESnet staff will conduct a demonstration of the Science DMZ as a service and show how the technique for speeding the flow of large datasets can be created on demand. The conference is tailor-made for the demonstration as GENI, the Global Environment for Network Innovations, provides a virtual laboratory for networking and distributed systems research and education.

The Science DMZ architecture, developed by ESnet, is a specialized network architecture to speed up the flow of large datasets. The Science DMZ is a portion of a network, usually at a university campus, that is configured to take optimal advantage of the campus’ advanced networks. A Science DMZ provides “frictionless” network paths that connect computational power and storage to scientific big data.
