Title: Nuclear Physics Network Requirements Review Report

Abstract

The Energy Sciences Network (ESnet) is the Office of Science’s high-performance network user facility, delivering highly reliable data transport capabilities optimized for the requirements of data-intensive science. In essence, ESnet is the circulatory system that enables the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) science mission by connecting each and every DOE lab and its user facilities. ESnet is funded and stewarded by the Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) Program, and managed and operated by the Scientific Networking Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). ESnet is widely regarded as a global leader in the research and education networking community. ESnet connects DOE national laboratories, user facilities, and major experiments so scientists can use remote instruments and computing resources as well as share data with collaborators, transfer large data sets, and access distributed data repositories. While ESnet provides network connectivity, it cannot be characterized as an internet service provider as it is specifically built to provide a range of network services that are tailored to meet the unique requirements of DOE’s data-intensive science. In short, ESnet’s mission is to enable and accelerate scientific discovery by delivering unparalleled network infrastructure, capabilities, and tools. ESnet’s vision is summarized by these three points. 1. Scientificmore » progress will be completely unconstrained by the physical location of instruments, people, computational resources, or data. 2. Collaborations at every scale, in every domain, will have the information and tools they need to achieve maximum benefit from scientific facilities, global networks, and emerging network capabilities. 3. ESnet will foster the partnerships and pioneer the technologies necessary to ensure that these transformations occur.« less
