High Energy Physicists Set New Record for Network Data Transfer

"80+ Gbps Sustained Rates for Hours Set a New Standard and Demonstrate that Current and Next Generation Long Range Networks Can Be Used Efficiently by Small Computing Clusters"

RENO, Nevada - Building on six years of record-breaking developments, an international team of physicists, computer scientists, and network engineers led by the California Institute of Technology, the University of Michigan, the National Institute of Information Technology in Pakistan, Polytehnica University in Romania, Fermilab, Brookhaven National Laboratory and CERN, and partners from Brazil (Rio de Janeiro State University, UERJ, and two of the State Universities of S Paulo, USP and UNESP) and Korea (Kyungpook National University, KISTI) joined forces to set new records for sustained data transfer among storage systems during the SuperComputing 2007 (SC07) conference.

This work was made possible by the strong support of the US Department of Energy Office of Science and the National Science Foundation.
