Sun Open Storage: Backbone for new data-transfer world record
By rebekah on Dec 11, 2008
An international team of physicists, computer scientists and network engineers achieved a bidirectional peak throughput of 114 Gbps and a sustained data flow of more than 110 Gbps among clusters of servers at SC08 in Austin, Texas.
Caltech's exhibit at SC08 demonstrated new applications and systems for globally distributed data analysis for the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, which is expected to resume operations in the spring. As I blogged about in September, CERN is also utilizing Sun Storage to handle the massive amounts of data that will be generated by the LHC.
