Description

The Internet 2 (I2) endeavor has made great strides towards the enhancement of educational and research collaboration among it members. An advanced communication and system infrastructure has been created by the various I2 initiatives. The Distributed Storage Infrastructure (DSI) project is another example of the I2 efforts to enable remote collaboration among the research and educational community. This effort extends the domain of a distributed high-speed computing environment to enable seamless resource sharing and access. The DSI effort has developed a flexible infrastructure that supports the sharing of educational content to disperse locations. Specific DSI characteristics include a focus on minimizing the cost of data sharing and an approach to policy-based resource management.
