The 5C’s of APAN: The Asia-Pacific Advanced Network (APAN) and international e-infrastructure development
Thursday, November 28 | 9.00am -9.45am
APAN spans over half the world’s population, across a third of the globe. This presentation will provide an overview of what APAN is, and importantly why it is the way it is: a partnership of like-minded IT service organisations supporting the research and education communities with high-speed networks (NRENs) and increasingly a wide range of e-infrastructure running across the networks to support “eResearch”. These include HPC and cloud facilities, data storage/access and management, identity federations, collaboration toolkits, and importantly strong support frameworks – people talking to people, sharing knowledge and experience, building skills.
