OARnet in Ohio to Help Researchers Accelerate Big Data Sharing

OARnet recently joined several other regional and federal network organizations on a three-year, $3.5 million grant to help scientists more efficiently work with massive datasets that have become essential to modern scientific discovery. “Throughout Ohio, and across the nation, we are seeing researchers transmitting an ever-increasing volume of larger and larger datasets over our networks,” said Paul Schopis, executive director of OARnet. “These vast stores of information are laying the foundations for improvements in health and prosperity. As research and education networks serving these educators, scientists and engineers, we have to develop the techniques, infrastructure and policies that will fully support their information-sharing needs.”
