          Bandwidth available to researchers (in megabits or gigabits per second)
1Workstation clusters replaced with server clusters in Hith Performance Computing in 2010. 2012-13 increase due to new Conte cluster and added VM technology.   l   WL campus: 10-1,000 Mbps        
  l   Intrastate4: 10 Gbps        
2Includes all university-owned desktop/laptop computers, workstations, and tablets in labs, offices, classrooms, research facilities, etc.   l   WL to regional campuses: 1 Gbps      
3Use of parallel supercomputers, clusters, and distributed computing cycles for computationally intensive research needs, including simulations and modeling.   l   Interstate5: 40 Gbps        
4Using I-Light (Indiana’s Optical Fiber Network), Purdue and IU high performance computing resources form the Indiana Distributed Terascale Facility, which has ten Gbps in available bandwidth.  
Data Storage Capacity and Utilization
5The National Science Foundation funded TeraGrid infrastructure which is a multi-year effort to build and deploy the world's largest, fastest, distributed infrastructure for open scientific research. TeraGrid has 40 Gbps in available bandwidth distributed at several national sites, of which the Indiana University-Purdue University Grid (http://www.purdue.teragrid.org/) is one.
62012-13 Usage data for Blackboard Learn including WL, North Central and Calumet campuses. Blackboard Vista is no longer being used
for academic purposes by any campus.
7Decrease in usage data for remote connections to applications is directly proportional to removal of Microsoft and Adobe softare from site.
