Addressing the Problem with Collaborative Secure Data Sharing

collaborative data sharing

As you’ve increasingly seen in news headlines, secure access to shared data is not only an issue for Federal and local government agencies and the Intelligence Community – it has also become an issue for business enterprises needing to protect their intellectual property and other sensitive business data while engaging on a global scale with their partners and contractors.

Deploying Collaborative Multilevel Security at Big Data and HPC Scale

Scientists across the U.S. will soon have access to new, ultra high-speed network links spanning the Atlantic Ocean, thanks to a project currently underway to extend ESnet (the U.S. Department of Energy’s Energy Sciences Network) to London, Amsterdam and Geneva.

HPC Virtualization and Workload Agility

HPC Workload Agility

Virtualization allows workloads to be compartmentalized in their own VM in order to take full advantage of the underlying parallelism of today’s multicore, heterogeneous HPC systems without compromising security. This approach is particularly beneficial for organizations centralizing multiple groups on to a shared cluster or for teams with security issues – for example, a life sciences environment where access to genomic data needs to be restricted to specific researchers.
