Science DMZ Examples

The Science DMZ paradigm is flexible, and can be adapted to many use cases. The design integrates four key concepts into a unified whole that together serve as a foundation for this model. These include:
  • A network architecture explicitly designed for high-performance applications, where the science network is distinct from the general-purpose network.
  • The use of dedicated systems for data transfer.
  • Performance measurement and network testing systems that are regularly used to characterize the network and are available for troubleshooting.
  • Security policies and enforcement mechanisms that are tailored for high performance science environments.
This video explores the ways in which the components of a Science DMZ work together to support data-intensive science.
