About the IU Science DMZ

The Indiana University Science DMZ is a dedicated computer network optimized to accommodate the vast amounts of research data produced by applications critical to scientific discovery and innovation. Unlike networks optimized for general-purpose, enterprise IT services, the IU Science DMZ is engineered specifically to support high performance, data-intensive science applications.

The IU Science DMZ's high performance network hardware is used exclusively for transferring research data between IU systems, and between IU and external networks. Its custom security policies are tailored to ensure maximum performance and baseline security. Real-time monitoring and testing systems are used to closely monitor traffic, performance, and security.

The IU Science DMZ is based on the Science DMZ network model introduced by the Energy Sciences Network (ESnet).
