CC*IIE Engineer: Campus Cyberinfrastructure Engineer for Arizona State University

Project: Research project

Description

Overview: Page A Arizona State University proposes to support advancement of its existing 100 Gbps Science DMZ with a campus cyberinfrastructure engineer. This will strengthen network research and data-intensive discipline specific research across the University. Specific attention is given to engaging discipline specific researchers on our Science DMZ. The campus cyberinfrastructure engineer will actively contribute to national best practices and advance similar networks in Arizona. Intellectual Merit : The explosion of data-intensive research at Arizona State University and the associated increasing demands on bandwidth is causing growing pains. This project will support ASU investments in campus-level, SDN-based network services to more efficiently enable a larger range of diverse and distributed research. For example, femtosecond nanocrystallography, biomass renewable energy, combustion for energy efficiency, the national EarthScope project, astronomy and astrophysics, desert water flows, genomics and other data-intensive research share a common need for interaction with a campus cyberinfrastructure engineer to assist with effectively using our Science DMZ. This project will also contribute to a national paradigm of campus level services on dynamic networks that enable leading edge research. Broader Impacts : A campus cyberinfrastructure engineeer will immediately benefit the full range of campus scholarly activities including other NSF sponsored projects, activities funded by other federal agencies, other campus scholarship including the social sciences and thh digital humanities. There will an equal impact on potential innovations for teaching and learning at the University. The expertise gained by campus cyberinfrastructure engineeer will be disseminated throughout Arizona. In addition, our campus cyberinfrastructure engineeer will help connect, through our regional Sun Corridor TeraPOP, Arizona K-12 school districts through the Internet2 Sponsored Education Group Participants program
