Information Science Virtual Private Cloud (IS-VPC)

Science Center Objects

The Information Science Branch developed a set of performance, security, and resiliency models to evaluate information architectures optimized for cloud hosting solutions.

The resultant Information Science Virtual Private Cloud (IS_VPC) architecture uses a container-based IT design pattern that efficiently captures, processes, integrates, and distributes data from many different information sources while maintaining a significant amount of flexibility. A number of replicated and scalable containers are managed and secured by a gatekeeper application, with step-by-step data processing captured in a provenance repository. The user accesses information streams through lightweight web portal applications that hide the underlying data integration framework complexity.
