Scientific Networking: Big Data in Moition
Brian L. Tierney is a Staff Scientist and group leader of the ESnet Advanced Network Technologies Group at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), and is PI of ESnet's 100G Network Testbed Project.
His research interests include high-performance networking and network protocols; distributed system performance monitoring and analysis; network tuning issues; and the application of distributed computing to problems in science and engineering. He has been the PI for several DOE research projects in network and Grid monitoring systems for data intensive distributed computing. Mr. Tierney has an M.S. in Computer Science from San Francisco State University, and a B.A. in physics from the University of Iowa. Brian has been at LBNL since 1990.
Eric Pouyoul is a Senior System Engineer in ESnet's Advanced Network Technologies Group at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). His interests include all aspects of high performance big data movement, networking, hardware, software and distributed systems. He has been ESnet lead for designing Data Transfer Nodes (DTN) as defined in the Science DMZ architecture as well as ESnet's work in Software Defined Networking (OpenFlow). Mr Pouyoul joined ESnet in 2009 and his 25 years prior experience includes real-time operating system, supercomputing and distributed systems.
