Research data require different network architectures

Researchers are faced with increasing volumes of data. Further, the infrastructure needed to support the storage, movement, and accessibility of research data needs to be optimized for high-speed data transfers. This is different from the typical general-purpose infrastructure, which usually includes a firewall to support business operations. Research data require different network architectures to ensure data mobility, different security policies that allow high data transfer performance and of course plenty of storage. In addition, understanding the research user requirements and workflows are crucial in designing these infrastructures.
