Data transfer workshop - Part 1
- Andrea Manzi
EGI recently launched a ‘Data Transfer Working Group’ to drive the technical evolution of Data Transfer services in the context of the EGI federation.
This workshop is organised by this working group with the aim to engage with scientific communities and technology/services providers, to present and to discuss use cases, user & operational requirements, state-of-the-art solutions. The input gathered during this double-session will be used by the working group to define and to run technology pilots, new services and test cases.
The workshop is relevant for scientific users, scientific communities who need to transfer large amounts of data among institutes at national, international or inter-continental scale. The session is also a good opportunity for developers and operators of data transfer services to collect requirements and propose solutions for EGI providers and user communities.
Main target audience
Scientists, representatives of scientific communities, data providers, compute/data centre operators.
Square Kilometre Array will be the largest radio telescope, which comes with its huge data challenges . SKA’s host sites are in South Africa and Australia. Each of the host sites is estimated to produce data at different rates. Very. high-performance central supercomputers (one in South Africa and another in Australia) process the extremely voluminous data produced by the SKA. The...
