    • WHAT ICT INNOVATION CAN DO FOR RESEARCHAN INTRODUCTION TO SURF
    • Collaboration = success factor• 14 research universities• 42 universities of applied sciences (hogescholen)• 8 university hospitals SURF is a partnership of and for• National Library of the Netherlands institutions for higher education and (Koninklijke Bibliotheek) research• Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO)• Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW)• TNO, Novay• Commercial R&D institutions• Small-scale higher education institutions• International cooperation with Knowledge Exchange, Géant, TERENA, EGI, EUDAT, PRACE and EC projects etc. 2
    • OWNED BY INSTITUTIONS WORKING WITH INSTITUTIONS NWO General(research fund) Board Executive Board RES EDU ADMNLeSC 3
    • SURF’s vision• ICT has become a fact of life, including in the higher education and research sector.• Research is becoming increasingly data-driven and requires an infrastructure for multi-institutional collaboration.• Students and staff want to access services and information within the cloud from any location using their own devices. 4
    • Big data• Large complex datasets used by researchers requires large-scale computing capacity and high- quality user support, combined with advanced network facilities.• Need for highly advanced e-infrastructure. 5
    • e-Infrastructure forresearchSURF is empowered to keepThe Netherlands in the top 5 ofthe Global CompetitivenessIndex by providing anadvanced nationale-Infrastructure consisting ofnetworks, supercomputers,grids and data. 6
    • THE point of contactfor e-Infrastructure and support • Separate components of the e-Infrastructure will be offered as an integrated service for researchers. • Coherent offering of network services (SURFnet), SURFsara facilities, and new services provided by The Netherlands eScience Center. 7
    • Technology innovation @SURF with user involvement and benefits outside community • Rapid prototyping and proof of concept in pilots with concrete use cases (small number of users) • Pre-market bandwidth and network technologies • Pre-production with bigger number of users • Production for whole user community • Technology transfer (1-2 years delay) • Attention to green IT and sustainability • Recent examples: • HPC Cloud • Collaboratorium visualization lab • Beehub storage for science • Big Data Hadoop services • LTE-trials
    • SURF for the top sectors/SME• Competitive advantage with national ICT- infrastructure• e-Infrastructure for industry and SME’s (pre- competitive research)• Knowledge transfer• Current and coming pilots: Top Sectors • Simulation and modeling • Tata Steel, Vortech • Big data Companies • KPMG, National Police, CBS • Visualization • Metaphora, Royal Haskoning DHV • HPC clouds • Arcadis, Deltaris • LTE trials • KPN, Tele2 Science Government Education
    • What SURF can do for researchers guarantees collaboration and involvement of managers in higher education and research connects users and ICT services and creates new functional possibilities favourable conditions for ICT services, software, content high performance computing, visualisation and data services for research multidisciplinary and data intensive research 10
    • State of the art network infrastructure • Unlimited data Cloud services transport supporting big data • Connecting users and services to each other and to the worldResearch Infrastructures Lightpath The rest of the Internet • Optimal use of BoD cloud services via Netherlight • Wireless and mobile (LTE) access 100 Gb/s through eduroam Wireless • Bandwidth on demand Internet or BoD 11
    • SURFconext:connecting people and resources Cloud services 12
    • SURFsara:Wide range of users and services
    • SARA HPC ecosystem6 categories of services• Low-latency, high-bandwidth national supercomputer;• Capacity compute cluster;• IAAS, PAAS and SAAS on-demand cloud services• Loosely coupled compute and data grid farms;• Big data cloud and software Services;• Special-purpose architectures (accelerators), for hybrid computing services.
    • Optimizing discoveryin the big data eraWork with diverse domainsand partnersPriority application domains • Chemistry & Materials • Life Sciences • eScience Methodology & ‘Big Data’ • Humanities & Social Sciences • Sustainability & Environment
    • Researchers support researchers eScience integrators • Top researchers from variety of disciplines • Experience & understanding of eScience • Create commitment • Stimulate new collaborations eScience engineers • Translate modern ICT into sustainable & coherent research solutions • Collaborate closely with domain experts • Work both at center and on site
    • A framework to share knowledge Linking pin between …the HE & R community through the other special interest groups SURF organisations • Research Data • Research Information governmental and • Research Support policy bodies www.surfspace.nl and board members of SURFacademy institutions … and through international partnerships 17
    • Research themes and innovation projects• Management of research data• Research Information• Research Support• Open access, open dataFocus on deposit of and access toresearch publications and research data• Cloud computing• Privacy and security• Sustainability (Green IT)• Online education• Open educational resources• Digital testing• Digital learning and working environment 18
