You are invited to attend a talk by Rajkumar Kettimuthu on Jan 29 at 1 p.m. Rajkumar is a Fellow in the Computation Institute at Argonne National Laboratory and the University of Chicago. He is the technology coordinator for Globus GridFTP, a wisely used bulk data movement tool. He currently leads multiple projects to develop tools for research data management and data movement protocols and next generation networks. He has published more than 50 articles in the areas of parallel, distributed and Grid computing. HE is a senior member of both IEEE and ACM.
Abstract: Big data is becoming a critical component of science. Researchers need tools that address their end-to-end distributed data management needs. But the small and medium research labs often lack the resources to deploy and maintain sophisticated software infrastructures. So, there is a strong need to do data management with modest effort. End users do not have the time and expertise to learn complex software. So the data management tools must be exceedingly easy to use. At the same time, these tools must be highly efficient and utilize the capabilities of advanced compute and network infrastructure.
