GLORIAD Network Infrastructure
July 28, 2010
The GLORIAD network "infrastructure" connects users at very high speeds, such as 10 Gbps. The network is open to all noncommercial use across political boundaries. Monitoring data flow ensures mutual "cybersecurity." Applications and databases from disparate sources can interact across the network through the help of "grid middleware." The system enables "global collaboration": researchers--the end users--may share data, instrumentation and processing power.
