The Future of R&E networks and cyber-infrastructure

  1. 1. The Future of NRENs Bill St. Arnaud Bill.st.arnaud@gmail.comUnless otherwise noted all material in this slide deck may bereproduced, modified or distributed without prior permission of the author
  2. 2. Looking Back• Internet started with R&E networks world wide – SURFnet was one of the first in Europe to deploy Internet• Most popular Internet applications like Google, Facebook, Twitter, etc started at universities connected to high speed networks like SURFnet• SURFnet started AMS-IX which has made The Netherlands global hub for Internet traffic• SURFnet pioneered the concept of customer owned dark fiber – Led to significantly lower costs for broadband and made The Netherlands world leader in consumer broadband• SURFnet led world optical networks which has transformed Internet• R&E networks have enabled a trillion dollar industry, approximately 6% of GNP 2
  3. 3. NRENs will play an even more important role looking forward• Technologies developed at SURFnet today may have bigger impact on Dutch society then Internet had in the past• Green networking• Big Data• Global Collaboration• Next generation Internet of integrated optical and wireless networks 3
  4. 4. Changing NREN networking environment• Global Virtual Research Communities• Increasing co-operation between public and private researchers• Rapidly changing users demands• Increasing potential of commercial ICT-service providers• Education: any time, any place, any device• Citizen Science and M2M communications and sensors
  5. 5. The ICT energy consumption in higher- ed• Campus computing 20-40% electrical energy consumption on most campuses – Studies in UK and The Netherlands – http://goo.gl/k9Kib• Campus data center alone represents 8-20% of electrical consumption – http://www.iisd.org/publications/pub.aspx?pno=1341• IISD study demonstrated that moving Canadian research to cloud would pay for itself in energy savings and CO2 reduction – http://www.iisd.org/publications/pub.aspx?pno=1341• Internet and ICT can reduce CO2 emissions by 15-20% – No other tool has this potential

  7. 7. The real cost of campus computing• Land - 2%• Core and shell costs – 9% Belady, C., “In the Data Center, Power and Cooling Costs More than IT Equipment it Supports”, Electronics Cooling• Architectural – 7% Magazine (February 2007)• Mechanical/Electrical – 82% – 16% increase/year since 2004 Source: Christian Belady

  10. 10. NREN Brokered Cloud for IT departments and Researchers• Internet 2 Net + – Provisioning of multi vendor cloud services leveraging the Internet2 Network and InCommon Federated Authentication – Interoperable marketplace for services where individual institutions might procure services from a wide range of cloud services providers.• HEFCE and JISC to Deliver Cloud-Based Services for UK Research – Besides providing brokered cloud services they are also providing cloud “solutions” for IT departments and researchers – http://www.hpcinthecloud.com/hpccloud/2011-06-27/hefce_and_jisc_to_deliver_cloud- based_services_for_uk_research.html?utm_medium=twitter&utm_source=twitterfeed• SURFnet: Community Cloud Models and the Role of the R&E network as a broker for cloud services – http://www.slideshare.net/haroldteunissen/community-clouds-shared-infrastructure-as-a-service

  12. 12. Building a NREN wireless network• Vision: to allow students, researchers and employees to collaborate, research, learn anytime and anywhere they seem fit!• Also Internet of Things – Machine to Machine communications• Existing 3G and 4G networks cannot handle data load – Roaming gateways prevent global seamless access – Voice centric architectures• New mobile networks seamlessly integrate with WiFi on campus – Utrecht SURFnet 4G wireless pilot – Already demonstrating with vetinanary students
