The Caltech team, in collaboration with network, computer science, and HEP partners at the DOE laboratories and universities, is building intelligent network services ("The Software-defined network for End-to-end Networked Science at Exascale (SENSE) research project") to accelerate scientific discovery.
The overarching goal of SENSE is to enable National Labs and universities to request and provision end-to-end intelligent network services for their application workflows leveraging SDN capabilities. The project's architecture, models, and demonstrated prototype define the mechanisms needed to dynamically build end-to-end virtual guaranteed networks across administrative domains, with no manual intervention from sysadmins or wide-are network engineers. In addition, a highly intuitive intent-based interface, as defined by the project, allows applications to express their high-level service requirements, and an intelligent, scalable model-based software orchestrator converts that intent into appropriate network services configured across multiple types of devices.
The overarching goal of SENSE is to enable National Labs and universities to request and provision end-to-end intelligent network services for their application workflows leveraging SDN capabilities.
In this paper, we will present the system's architecture and components, the first integration results with Scientific Collaboration tools, Quality of Service, and the next steps for better network use and utilization.
