U-M to Participate in a Program to Advance Middleware Computing for Internet2.
The University of Michigan (U-M) has announced that it will participate with 10 other universities in an Early Adopters Program (http://www.internet2.edu/middleware) sponsored by the University Corporation for Advanced Internet Development (UCAID) with funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF). According to the announcement, the Early Adopters will help develop and act as a test bed for middleware computing technologies, resulting in early implementation of important tools for campus networks.
The program is designed to help campuses advance middleware computing technologies in preparation for the next generation of the Internet (Internet2) being developed for research and education purposes by participating universities and other supporters. The Early Adopters status offers U-M access to high-level technical support, an opportunity to establish national models of deployment, a forum for sharing experiences and best practices for implementation, and the ability to evaluate new tools and technologies.
