    1. Directions for EECS Computing and Networking David Culler U.C. Berkeley

    2. Introducing... • Hua-Pei Chen (Pei) - new Titan lead • former LBNL chief technologist, unix group leader, … • Rebuilding the group from top down • Ken Lutz - Networked Systems Architect • former Inktomi director of technical operations • 25% lead departmental technical position • 75% lead Millennium staff EECS C and N

    3. Project Research Groups Net Titan Administrative Computing Group Computer Services Group Instruction and Electronics Support Group And re-introducing, ... Pei Chen Jon Forrest Fred Archibald Jan Pardoe Katlin Voros Rob McNicholas Kevin Mullally Ferenc Kovac EECS C and N

    4. NEWS • SimMillennium NSF research infrastructure grant awarded! • 1.7 M$ for networking, UI/Viz, Computational Economy. • Campus Millennium staff support extended • MARCO center grant awarded • Campus Blue Ribbon Committees pushing for improved Comp. And Networking • 35 M$ Campus Network program • new earthquake proof backbone, risers, depts. • “Raise the floor” • Computer and support for every faculty • Instruction labs + PC requirement • Assoc. VC for Educational Technology • Campus switch to Exodus for ISP EECS C and N

    5. Basic research infrastructure • Rebuilding Titan core team to provide department-wide state-of-the-art research infrastructure • clearer relationship to CSG • Streamlining and sharing SWW on-going development • Completing transition to Pleiades clustered storage and information server • Cory starting similar development • Coherent NT infrastructure • Deep Unix/NT fusion • Elimination of clear-text passwords • Beyond the workstation/PC EECS C and N

    6. Networking • Cory network officially done (7/1/98) • 1.7 M$ (within 5%) • further enhancements expensed as upgrades • working with Bay to improve manageability of the core • ATM -> gigabit ethernet • Working on further switched 100BT enhancement to Soda • gigabit core already in place • via Titan • Major discount agreement in place with Bay (NorTel) • up to 5M$ at 30% • SimMillennium will build new gigabit experimental campus “tier” EECS C and N

    7. NS Arch Project Research Groups Net Titan Administrative Computing Group Computer Services Group Instruction and Electronics Support Group Towards Organizational Cooperation • Projects cross tech. Staff group boundaries. • Provide project-oriented technical guidance • translated strategic direction into tech. requirements and design • guide development • Clarify the interfaces • Focus missions • Enhance tech. expertise • Continuity across VCs EECS C and N

    8. PC Support • Current situation ‘filled the vacuum” • Titan NT-SWW => informal soda desktop support + “do it yourself” directions • IESG instructional labs and electronics => cory infrastructure + desktop support + intel donations • CSG HW support • Research groups did own thing • Working group will define common infrastructure • include NT/Unix integration, division of responsibilities, funding • CSG will offer a coherent, economical support contract with help desk • external tracking of progress and responsiveness • specific work assignment handled internally • IESG will drive forward state-of-the-art instructional and AV capabilities EECS C and N

    9. Beyond the desktop • Powerful infrastructure (0.5 TB coming up) • continue to grow • IBM has donated 150 PalmPilots to build new tier on Millennium via Ninja project • the research group members and relevant tech. Staff • CS 160 / 260 classes • interested first year grads • … then we’ll talk • Building PDA instructional lab • Building PDA connectivity infrastructure • initially ugly cradles all over • soon (hopefully) a clean wireless infrastructure • plan to grow project to entire EECS community EECS C and N

    10. AV situation • Seminar rooms have been upgraded with new PCs. • New high-tech seminar room in 405 Soda. • Simplifying fancy rooms by separating off high-tech from basic presentation needs. => Enhance project design and management capability EECS C and N

    11. Upcoming initiatives • Next Intel instructional request • interpret instructional broadly - read “lab” • focused on the upper division • apply strong guano filter • open for input • Working on a separate “new faculty” grant • utilize external research grants for onsey, twosey • Plan to put Sun / DEC thrust together • Expand wireless capability • ideas??? • CSE ??? • NCs ??? EECS C and N

    12. On-going CNR tasks • DHCP • Security • SSH, Kerberos, CA • IMAP, exchange • Calendar support • Authoring support • Division of labor with DCNS for host master, ip master, network maintenance • Department, COE, CSG need to upgrade databases • Modem bank EECS C and N
