perfSONAR collaboration members are pleased to welcome Rede Nacional de Ensino e Pesquisa (RNP), the national research and education network of Brazil, as a collaboration partner.

RNP has been involved with perfSONAR and using perfSONAR tools for 15 years, even having their own implementation of perfSONAR for eight years. RNP has adopted perfSONAR 4 as a base, and that version is now deployed across Brazil in 27 PoPs. Initial specific interests include containerization, perfSONAR as microservices, standard display and analysis packages as well as possibly bringing their link testing tool into the standard perfSONAR package. RNP brings additional effort to the combined core development team and will play a crucial role in the continued evolution of perfSONAR.
