GENI (Global Environment for Network Innovations)
http://www.geni.net/

GENI (Global Environment for Network Innovations) provides a virtual laboratory for networking and distributed systems research and education. It is well suited for exploring networks at scale, thereby promoting innovations in network science, security, services and applications. GENI allows experimenters to: a) Obtain compute resources from locations around the United States; b) Connect compute resources using Layer 2 networks in topologies best suited to their experiments; c) Install custom software or even custom operating systems on these compute resources; d) Control how network switches in their experiment handle traffic flows; and e) Run their own Layer 3 and above protocols by installing protocol software in their compute resources and by providing flow controllers for their switches.

Factory Floor Connectivity of the Future: The Industrial Internet of Things

September 17, 2014

Factory Floor Connectivity of the Future: The Industrial Internet of Things
http://www.sealevel.com/community/blog/factory-floor-connectivity-of-the-future-the-industrial-internet-of-things/

Google Glass, Fitbit, and Nest are just a few of the names now familiar to consumers in North America. This year’s Consumer Electronics Show featured demonstrations of an Internet-connected tennis racket and many “smart home” products, from smartphone-tethered light bulbs to door locks and washing machines. These are just a few examples of wearable computers, or in-home devices designed to connect to “the Internet of Things.”  The idea of the Internet of Things isn’t new, though. The massively interoperating network of devices, meant to simplify new products and service models for consumers, has been discussed by IT industry insiders for years. However, thanks in part to some big-figure prognostications by the likes of Cisco Chief Executive John Chambers, Internet of Things is giving “the cloud” some real competition for media attention. Chambers predicted the market for applications connected to the Internet of Things would be as much as $19 trillion in the not-so-distant future, a projection that some analysts might consider conservative. Venture capitalists have been drawn to startups in this emerging sector, too. As many as 53 deals have brought an estimated $1.1 billion invested in start-ups working on health-care and home automation products. This will be added to Internet-of-Things Resources white paper.

International Research Resources

September 17, 2014

International Research Resources
http://libguides.sjsu.edu/internationalresearch

This guide is intended as a repository of resources specifically for research using materials produced and collected in other countries. The main resources included here are links to national libraries, national bibliographies and union catalogs. Additional regional resources have been included where appropriate. These resources would be useful to researchers looking at the history of a particular country or region. There is the potential to find resources or historical items through a national library or regional union catalog that are not indexed anywhere else. This is also a resource for catalogers. they can use these resources when cataloging foreign materials that are not found in OCLC. Navigation can be done through the tabs at the top or the table of contents to the left. Resources are divided geographically. On each continental main page there are maps indicating what countries are included in the regional subsections. Regional subsections are based on the macro geographical divisions as defined by the United Nations Statistical Division. This will be added to Research Resources Subject Tracer™ Information Blog.

Research Data Alliance

September 16, 2014

Research Data Alliance
https://www.rd-alliance.org/

The Research Data Alliance (RDA) builds the social and technical bridges that enable open sharing of data. The RDA vision is researchers and innovators openly sharing data across technologies, disciplines, and countries to address the grand challenges of society. The current global research data landscape is highly fragmented, by disciplines or by domains, from oceanography, life sciences and health, to agriculture, space and climate. When it comes to cross-disciplinary activities, the notions of “building blocks” of common data infrastructures and building specific “data bridges” are becoming accepted metaphors for approaching the data complexity and enable data sharing. The Research Data Alliance enables data to be shared across barriers through focused Working Groups and Interest Groups, formed of experts from around the world – from academia, industry and government. Participation in RDA is open to anyone who agrees to its guiding principles of openness, consensus, balance, harmonisation, with a community driven and non-profit approach. It was started in 2013 by a core group of interested agencies – the European Commission, the US National Science Foundation and National Institute of Standards and Technology, and the Australian Government’s Department of Innovation. Other agencies, countries, companies, associations and institutes are due to join. RDA also has a broad, committed membership of individuals – now 1600 from 70+ countries since RDA was launched in March 2013 – dedicated to improving data exchange.

European Data Infrastructure (EUDAT)

European Data Infrastructure (EUDAT)
http://www.eudat.eu/

In recent years, significant investments have been made by the European Commission and European member states to create a pan-European e-infrastructure supporting multiple research communities. As a result, a European e-infrastructure ecosystem is currently taking shape, with communication networks, distributed grids and HPC facilities providing European researchers from all fields with state-of-the-art instruments and services that support the deployment of new research facilities on a pan-European level. However, the accelerated proliferation of data – newly available from powerful new scientific instruments, simulations and digitization of library resources –, has created a new impetus for increasing efforts and investments in order to tackle the specific challenges of data management, and to ensure a coherent approach to research data access and preservation. EUDAT aims to address these challenges and exploit new opportunities using its vision of a Collaborative Data Infrastructure.

Data Observation Network for Earth (DataONE)
https://www.dataone.org/

Data Observation Network for Earth (DataONE) is the foundation of new innovative environmental science through a distributed framework and sustainable cyberinfrastructure that meets the needs of science and society for open, persistent, robust, and secure access to well-described and easily discovered Earth observational data.Supported by the U.S. National Science Foundation (Grant #ACI-0830944) as one of the initial DataNets, DataONE will ensure the preservation, access, use and reuse of multi-scale, multi-discipline, and multi-national science data via three primary cyberinfrastucture elements and a broad education and outreach program. DataONE mission: Enable new science and knowledge creation through universal access to data about life on earth and the environment that sustains it. DataONE vision: DataONE will be commonly used by researchers, educators, and the public to better understand and conserve life on earth and the environment that sustains it.
