Inder Monga, acting ESnet Director and ESnet Chief Technology Officer, gave an invited talk last month at the eResearch NZ conference in New Zealand. In his talk, Monga discussed established and emerging design patterns in networks.
Monga pointed out that all R&E networks have a shared fate. No one organization is big enough or rich enough to build a global network but scientists want to collaborate with people no matter where in the world they are, so scientific data has to cross each other’s networks all the time.
“We depend on each other. We depend on all networks being excellent,” said Monga. This means we all have to help each other, it’s no good having one excellent network if the networks it connects to aren’t up to scratch.
