Establishing Community and Trust to Build a Shared Research Network

Wednesday, October 27 | 2:15PM–3:00PM ET
Viewing Location: Online
Session Type: Poster Session
Delivery Format: Poster

Many institutions are interested in the benefits that a Science DMZ can bring to give their faculty and students secure, fast access to large data transfers, and educational and research computing capabilities. But the capabilities needed to develop a Science DMZ are formidable and sometimes out of reach of small colleges, especially minority-serving institutions, compounding disparities between large and small institutions. Join IT leaders from NC Central, Davidson, and Duke as they discuss their work to plan and ultimately propose a shared Science DMZ as a statewide resource in partnership with MCNC, North Carolina’s state research and education network. In addition to discussing the technology benefits, the presenters will share the researcher engagement and planning for the regional proposal. This work is supported by a planning grant from the NSF Campus Cyberinfrastructure program.
