The Janet End-to-End Performance Initiative

Duncan Rand, Jisc

We are seeing a growth in data-intensive science applications and flows. Whilst the current state of the art involves the transfer of large datasets between sites at up to 30 Gb/s there are many researchers who are frustrated by an inability to transfer data at an acceptable speed.

The Janet End to End Performance Initiative aims to help sites and researchers improve data transfer and so make optimal use of their Janet connectivity. I will describe the Initiative and some typical use cases.
