Southeastern Universities Research Association Teach a Man to Fish If you give a man a fish, he will eat for a day. If you teach a man to fish, he will eat for a lifetime. Chinese proverb
Southeastern Universities Research Association NSF Middleware Initiative (NMI) Goal: Design, develop, deploy and support a set of reusable, expandable middleware functions and services that benefit applications in a networked environment NMI *Enterprise and Desktop Integration Technologies NMI GRIDS USC/ISI, U Chicago, UIUC/NCSA, UCSD, U Wisconsin NMI-EDIT* Internet2, SURA, EDUCAUSE For more information: Web site: Presentation archives from EDUCAUSE 2003, November 5, 3:50 p.m. - 4:40 p.m.
Southeastern Universities Research Association NMI Integration Testbed USERS Implementers Target Communities NMI Integration Testbed NMI Participation DEVELOPERS SUPPORTERS CONTRIBUTORS ? future expansion UAB UAH UFL FSU GSU UMich TACC UVA Sites NMI Integration Testbed (USC) REU Students Testbed Grid Developed and managed by SURA Sites evaluate NMI components upon release Real life research and enterprise contexts
Southeastern Universities Research Association Activities Lots and Lots of things: Evaluation of NMI Releases (three so far) Project & enterprise middleware integration Student education through NSF REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) Community education through workshops & presentations Examination of next generation infrastructure in the intra-Testbed grid
Southeastern Universities Research Association But back to fishing… If deployment is the fish, collaboration is the best bait! Cool! Now I can implement some middleware!
Southeastern Universities Research Association Topics in this Session 1) The Roadmap (literally) to directory services, a foundational piece of middleware 2) Applications-a-mundo, all from a little ol directory implementation 3) Grids: The next level of middleware-enabled infrastructure, for research and beyond
