  • The Digital Age Challenge Confronting LSUProviding the cyber-infrastructure that is needed to properly support the research and creative activities of students and faculty in a modern research university.
  • It is a three-part challenge: High-performance computers – to deliver computing cycles that can support the numerical modeling of complex systems and the numerical analysis – often involving high-fidelity visualization – of large and complex data sets. high-bandwidth networks - facilitates access to data and the transport of digital data among individuals, facilities, or storage sites even at widely dispersed geographic locations.High-capacity and long-term digital storage - supports experimental or clinical investigations that, over time, acquire larger and larger quantities of data; it supports complex numerical modeling activities, which steadily generate larger and larger quantities of data; and it provides an infrastructure that is essential for preserving (archiving and curating) a wide variety of digital data, whether acquired or generated.
  • Where Does LSU Stand Right Now? Over the past decade, as a partner in the Board of Regents-sponsored Louisiana Optical Network Initiative (LONI), LSU has benefitted significantly from the establishment and maintenance of a robust, research-caliber high-performance computing (HPC) environment and a robust, statewide, high-bandwidth optical network.However, the second identified component of a modern university’s required cyber-infrastructure – high-capacity and long-term storage – is missing, and LSU suffers as a result.
  • Where Does LSU Stand Right Now? LONI is unique in that it provides statewide higher education with high-bandwidth communications and high-performance computing resources in a truly integrated and sophisticated research network. Adding the infrastructure to support “big data” as well, would clearly set LSU and Louisiana apart from the rest!
  • Here is the support to higher education research provided by various regional optical networks
  • How Big is the “Big Data” Challenge?For decades, only a few areas of scientific research – notably, astronomy, meteorology, and experimental high-energy physics – have been faced with the problem of effectively managing large sets of digital data. In recent years this problem has become pervasive.
  • Big data sets are acquired or are generated in the context of fields as wide-ranging as medical imaging, genomics, coastal hazards modeling, three-dimensional (especially, time-dependent) visualization, medical records, e-commerce, digital games, virtual architecture, and social media. Indeed, it is now difficult to identify a field of research that does not involve “big data.”
  • Big Data is a Big Topic -Look for Big Data Headlines from The Chronicle of Higher EducationMcKinsey & Company
  • Strategic Priority for LSU TransformationBuild and Maintain a Big Data Strategic Advantage that Attracts Top Students, Faculty, Researchers, and Entrepreneurs
  • Investment Estimate$5 million capital $1 million annual for storage and qualified IT and library staff
  • THANK YOU
