Networks as a Service for Grid and Cloud - The Mantychore Project
David O'Callaghan - TCD
Mantychore aims to provide dynamic networking as a service for e-infrastructure users. Mantychore takes an "infrastructure as a service" (IaaS) approach to networking to enable National Research and Education Networks (NRENs) and other e-Infrastructure providers to deploy a configurable, automatable network that allows virtual research communities to control routers, switches, optical devices, and IP networks as necssary to meet the needs of their applications. Grid and cloud computing will provide some of the first real uses for this technology. Mantychore's facilities should make it easier to share computing and storage resources between grid sites or to create a distributed computing cloud spanning several institutions.
