Logistical Networking is the global scheduling and optimization of data movement, storage and computation. At LoCI, scientists develop tools for fast data transfer, such as the Data Mover, using as much bandwidth as is available. At iGrid, a geographically distributed abstraction of file is replicated, transported to depots that are closer according to network proximity values calculated in real time using the Network Weather Service (NWS), and downloaded from the nearest site in a completely transparent way for a high-level application.
