IntroductionNauka-NetCIV-NetFriendsGridsThe Future The Memorandum of Understanding The Chinese Academy of Sciences represented by the Computer Network Information Center (CNIC), the Russian Research Center Kurchatov Institute and the US National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) of the University of Illinois jointly propose a new strategic framework for advancing S&E cooperation among the three countries and across the myriad disciplines comprising current and future collaborative research. Linking their scientific communities with an advanced S&E network and Grid-based services, the multi-national GLORIAD program will actively encourage and coordinate applications across multiple disciplines and provide for sharing such scientific resources as databases, instrumentation, computational services, software, etc. In addition to supporting active scientific exchange with network services, the program will provide a test bed for advancing the state-of-the-art in collaborative and network technologies – including Grid-based applications, optical network switching, an IPv6 backbone, network traffic engineering and network security. Supporting the increasing growth in global S&E cooperation, GLORIAD will cooperate with other national S&E networks and scientific resources as required.
IntroductionNauka-NetCIV-NetFriendsGridsThe Future Lightwave/Lambda Network 10 Gbps Lambda Continuous Ring (segmented into multiple GigE ethernets) Need to decide carrier issues, meet points, etc. Russias network will be ready (to Russia-China border) in late 2003 Chinas network will be ready (to Russia-China border) in early 2004 Important in later phase of project (year 3) that we have multiple lambdas (at least, when needed) and capability to switch lambdas on demand
IntroductionNauka-NetCIV-NetFriendsGridsThe Future Action Items Determine carrier issues for trans-Atlantic and trans- Pacific links. Must choose carrier with stable financial base, excess lambda capacity, eagerness to work on large R&D project. Finalize arrangements with Russian company TransTelecom Finalize transit issues within and to/from China Finalize network topology (optical nodes, facilities, equipment)

IntroductionNauka-NetCIV-NetFriendsGridsThe Future Application Communities GLORIAD is to focus on application communities - especially those with needs which could not be met without such an advanced network First, need to identify and document needs of these communities Second, need to educate/inform scientists, educators, students about potential services, capabilities Third, need to continually inform/update broad community about opportunities of collaboration
IntroductionNauka-NetCIV-NetFriendsGridsThe Future Active interest in GLORIAD program Signed Statement of the US-Russian Joint Committee for Science and Technology (J. Marburger, M.P. Kirpichnikov) Presentation to Presidents Science Advisory Council, Russian Federation Signed Agreement (March 12, 2003) between 7 Russian Ministries, Russian Academy of Science & RRC Kurchatov Institute
IntroductionNauka-NetCIV-NetFriendsGridsThe Future Signed Statement of US-Russian S&T Commission Informational and Telecommunication Technologies in Science and Education The Committee gave a favorable appraisal of the results achieved through cooperation between the Russian Ministry of Industry, Science, and Technology (MIST) and the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS) and the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) on high capacity computing and new generation computer networks, including under the NaukaNet (FASTnet) Project, carried out by the Interagency Supercomputer Center, the Russian Science Center Kurchatov Institute, the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign), and the Supercomputer Center at the University of California, San Diego. The Committee recommended that U.S. and Russian cooperation partners continue their active cooperation and discussions of the potential of next-generation computing and networking projects, such as those envisioned as the "TERRA GRID" network and the Global Network For Advanced Application Development (GLORIAD).
IntroductionNauka-NetCIV-NetFriendsGridsThe Future Presentation to Russian S&T Council January 2003: The forum was the President's Science & Technology Council and the participants included -- in addition to the President (who presides over this council) -- the nation's most senior science officials (including the Minister of Science, Industry & Technology, the President of the Russian Academy of Science and the President of the Kurchatov Institute (Dr. Velikhov)), and also the Finance Minister (and Vice Premier), the Minister of Commerce, the Minister of Atomic Energy and the head of the National Security Council. Where the Kurchatov Institute leads, Russia follows (Russian President)
IntroductionNauka-NetCIV-NetFriendsGridsThe Future Signed Russian Agreement On Wednesday, March 12, 2003, Dr. Velikhov placed the final signature on a document developed by 7 senior organizations in Russia indicating support and intention to pursue implementation of GLORIAD. It was signed at the Minister level by Ministry of Industry, Science & Technology, Ministry of Communications, Ministry of Atomic Energy and Ministry of Education. Also, the President of the Russian Academy of Sciences signed on behalf of the Academy and Dr. Velikhov on behalf of Kurchatov Institute (and as project organizer/lead). The agreement is to not only fund the international and networking parts of GLORIAD but also domestic infrastructure and programs to enable the science and education communities to utilize GLORIAD. Finally, we understand that Russian federal funds are now obligated for GLORIAD -- from the above organizations -- the Ministry of Industry, Science & Technology will be the financially responsible organization.
