E08 Podcast: Preparing Your Campus for Data-Intensive Researchers

This forty-three minute podcast features a session recorded at the EDUCAUSE 2008 Annual Conference. The presentation, "Preparing Your Campus for Data-Intensive Researchers," is by Larry Smarr, Harry E. Gruber Professor in the Department of Computer Science & Engineering at the University of California, San Diego. Streaming video for this session is also available.

The NSF-funded OptIPuter project has been exploring how user-controlled high-bandwidth dedicated lightwaves (lambdas) can provide direct access to global data repositories, scientific instruments, and computational resources from the researchers' Linux clusters in their campus laboratories. These clusters are reconfigured as “OptIPortals,” providing the end users with local scalable visualization, computing, and storage. This session reports on several campuses that have deployed this high-performance cyberinfrastructure and describes how this user-configurable OptIPuter global platform opens new frontiers in research.
