The NSF funded Open Storage Network provides a Cyberinfrastructure service to address specific data storage, transfer, sharing, and access challenges while enabling and enhancing data-driven research collaborations across universities and making new datasets widely available. The OSN Leadership team has met more than 36 times, including their monthly meetings, to manage team collaboration efforts, drive the pilot timeline, and support the working groups in decision making. The South Hub Clo-PI, Jay Aikat, leads a team of 30+ individuals who have created working groups to address (system) implementation, software, science use cases, community engagement, and policy creation. The OSN is hosting data sets that are available to the public. These data sets can be used in an instructional setting to educate future researchers and data scientists. Instructors at all levels can use these data sets to expose their students to the many distinct disciplines represented on the OSN’s servers.
