Science DMZ, perfSONAR & Software Defined Networking Workshop
September 27 from 8:30 am - September 28 from 5:00 pm
NYSERNet, The Rockefeller University, ESnet, Indiana University and Internet2 have partnered to offer members of the NYSERNet community a free custom Science DMZ, perfSONAR and Software Defined Networking workshop in New York City this September.
NJEdge members are encouraged sign up today to learn how to implement a Science DMZ architecture on your campus or laboratory’s local network perimeter, see examples of successful deployments, learn about network devices capable of handling scientific use cases, and sensible ways to transform your campus security policies.
Network engineers will learn what they need to plan and operate SDN on their networks. The GlobalNOC will show you how to design, deploy and operate SDN networks, touching on:
- SDN hardware and software selection
- Architectural models for interconnecting SDN and traditional networks
- The building blocks of OpenFlow-based SDN
- Testing methods for deploying SDN applications
- Troubleshooting lessons for SDN
You’ll learn about network performance concepts and the tools needed to monitor performance locally and end-to-end. You’ll also see how to install perfSONAR, and how to integrate your testing needs with the larger community.
Finally, you’ll learn about Data Transfer Nodes (DTNs), including how to construct and integrate them into a Science DMZ environment to improve workflow efficiency.
Dates: Sept. 27 and 28, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Location: The Rockefeller University, 1230 York Ave., E. 66th St., New York City
**All participants must bring their own laptops**
