Join network architecture experts from Duke's Office of Information Technology (OIT) as they discuss networking for researchers. The session will include foundational concepts of networking for scientific applications, with discussion of Duke's successful implementation of a Science DMZ to support high-performance scientific computing across multiple years, and new initiatives such as the Archipelago project to deploy purpose-driven hybrid architectures and design of a new regional shared science DMZ. We'll also cover ways that Duke researchers can recognize potential to improve their own network-based performance. While this session will be especially relevant for campus investigators who have interest in NSF cyberinfrastructure initiatives, we encourage anyone who wants to learn more about the campus network infrastructure or who is frustrated in moving large amounts of data into, out of, or around Duke's campus to attend.

This session is part of the Duke+DataScience (+DS) program virtual learning experiences (vLEs). To learn more, please visit
