The All-Hub Data and CyberInfrastructure Working Group was relaunched as an All-Hub working group in collaboration with all four Big Data Hubs.  the Data Sharing and CyberInfrastructure Working Group works to: (1) map existing data cyberinfrastructure collaborations, services, and resources; (2) identify Hub member and Spoke project data and cyberinfrastructure requirements and opportunities for new collaborations and matchmaking of need to existing technologies; (3) build collaborations and partnerships to facilitate federated data sharing, computing, and analysis across institutions and partners, leveraging the activities of the Open Storage Network, XCEDE, the National Data Service (NDS), and others; (4) develop a testbed, and demonstrate integration of iRODs, NDS Labs, XSEDE, and Discovery Environment; and (5) secure funding to meet these objectives.

The Data Sharing and Cyberinfrastructure Working Group is actively working in close collaboration with the Northeast, Midwest, West, and South Big Data Hubs, including representatives from the NDS, XSEDE, DataNet Federation, and iRODS Consortium.
