University of Cincinnati Campus-Wide Deep Dive
In April 2019, staff members from the Engagement and Performance Operations Center (EPOC) and the The Ohio Academic Resources Network (OARnet) met with faculty and staff from the University of Cincinnati to perform a Campus-Wide Deep Dive. The goal of this interaction was to help characterize a number of scientific and educational drivers for the entire campus, and to enable cyberinfrastructure support staff to better understand the needs of the researchers they support. Material for this event includes both the written documentation from the University of Cincinnati, but also a writeup of the discussion that took place in person on April 26, 2019. Each of the highlighted use case highlights specific challenges, but a number of themes emerged that the campus is encouraged to address. In particular, the lack of available local compute and storage resources is impacting several groups and others can greatly benefit from a fully featured Science DMZ infrastructure to facilitate remote data access and transfer.
