PLATON - Service Platform for e-Science

"PLATON - Service Platform for e-Science"

  The PLATON Project aims to create and activate 5 services based on the PIONIER network. These services are:

Videoconference Services: realized by building a high-quality, secure videoconference system in the PIONIER network, which will enable point-to-point connections, as well as connections between multiple locations simultaneously but also give the possibility to record and replay particular videoconferences.


Eduroam Sevices: simple and secure roaming for people from the scientific and academic community in Poland by launching model secure systems of access to the wireless network in every MAN network and HPC centre.


Campus Services: services offered on the basis of an innovative computing-service infrastructure of a nationwide range which delivers applications on demand, capable of providing a wide range of users from the scientific and research environments with an elastic and scalable access to specific applications, both in MS Windows and Linux systems (taking into consideration the needs of professional groups in these environments, including the implementation of an integrated system of services managing the grid resources).


Archiving Services: available at a national level, offer remote archiving and backup as a value added to the national, academic and research PIONIER network. Archiving services, which increase the real-time data protection, are one of the elements necessary to increase reliability of functioning of each unit, and are addressed to the academic environment, including the higher education system, research and development units and hospitals dependent on universities and medical universities.


Science HD TV Services: the national platform offering interactive science HD television which delivers services in the PIONIER network and is based on high definition digital content for both education and popularization of science and telemedicine.

On January 18, 2013 the trial videoconference was held between the Ministry of Science and Higher Education and MAN ( Metropolitan Academic Networks) centers in Gdansk, Gliwice, Poznan, Krakow, Wroclaw, Warsaw and Lodz.

Once again, we invite you to participate in promotion workshops of PLATON project’s Archiving services, under the title “Practical archiving aspects and data protection”, which will be held in seven major Polish cities. You can already register for each event.
To celebrate the upcoming Christmas, the participants of the scientific HDTV services of the PLATONproject , in collaboration with various centers, created a videoshowing a unique, pre-Christmas atmosphere. The film editing was made in the film center of the city of £ůdľ.
Networking, Storage, GPU, Petascale, Exascale and Cuda are just some of the key issues raised at this year's Internet Supercomputing Conference in Hamburg. Projects presented at the PIONIER Consortium and PSNC’s stand perfectly fit into the theme of the ISC 2011.
Scientists, scientific and research units staff, as well as universities staff and students will be able to participate in a free workshop on archiving in six Polish cities by the end of December.
