NSF Grant Supports Research Computing Infrastructure at FAU

Florida Atlantic University has received a $500,000, two-year grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to install networking infrastructure to amplify its ability to conduct data-intensive science and engineering research. The network design, referred to as a DMZ, isolates research traffic from other university network operations to achieve high performance. The network will provide faculty and students with a tenfold increase in capacity.

The DMZ will span the Boca Raton, Jupiter, and Harbor Branch campuses, as well as Scripps Florida and the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience. The DMZ will link all five sites to computation and storage facilities provided through the Sunshine State Education and Research Computing Alliance (SSERCA) via the University’s existing link to the Florida Lambda Rail. The DMZ makes it possible for FAU to contribute to and benefit from growing computational and networking capacity across the state.
