With the recent endorsement of 100 Gbps Ethernet (GigE) by an IEEE Study Group, new opportunities for modules and component firms are about to appear. To help clients better understand and capitalize on these opportunities, CIR, an industry analysis firm, has announced the release of a new report titled "Beyond 10 & 40 Gbps; Next Generation Ethernet and Sonet/SDH." The report examines the evolution of networking beyond 10 Gbps and 40 Gbps speeds and shows where the next big wave of high-speed network commercialization will hit.
CIR claims that development efforts geared towards moving beyond current line rates will impact the networking value chain much sooner than expected and in a number of different ways.
CIR's report includes an analysis of the opportunities and addressable markets for emerging markets for TDM, Ethernet and WDM networks operating at above 40 Gbps. It covers both optical and electronic components including lasers, modulators, detectors, electronic and optical dispersion products, amplifiers, WDM components, MAC, PMD and PHY chips and many other areas. The report also discusses the firms that are already making waves in this space and provides an assessment of the addressable market for these next-generation networks over the next decade. Firms covered in this report include Apogee, Avago, Avanex, Bookham, Broadcom, Emcore, ExceLight, Finisar, Fujitsu, Infinera, Intel, JDSU, Hitachi Cable, Luxtera, MergeOptics, OCPI, NEC, Picolight, Opnext and Vitesse among others. Additional details about the report including a summary and outline can be found on the firm's website at http://www.cir-inc.com.
In quieter times, sounding the bell of funding big science with big systems tends to resonate further than when ears are already burning with sour economic and national security news. For exascale's future, however, the time could be ripe to instill some sense of urgency....
In a recent solicitation, the NSF laid out needs for furthering its scientific and engineering infrastructure with new tools to go beyond top performance, Having already delivered systems like Stampede and Blue Waters, they're turning an eye to solving data-intensive challenges. We spoke with the agency's Irene Qualters and Barry Schneider about..
Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

The study of climate change is one of those scientific problems where it is almost essential to model the entire Earth to attain accurate results and make worthwhile predictions. In an attempt to make climate science more accessible to smaller research facilities, NASA introduced what they call ‘Climate in a Box,’ a system they note acts as a desktop supercomputer.

At some point in the not-too-distant future, building powerful, miniature computing systems will be considered a hobby for high schoolers, just as robotics or even Lego-building are today. That could be made possible through recent advancements made with the Raspberry Pi computers.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.

Supercomputers at the Department of Energy’s National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) have worked on important computational problems such as collapse of the atomic state, the optimization of chemical catalysts, and now modeling popping bubbles.
05/10/2013 | Cleversafe, Cray, DDN, NetApp, & Panasas | From Wall Street to Hollywood, drug discovery to homeland security, companies and organizations of all sizes and stripes are coming face to face with the challenges – and opportunities – afforded by Big Data. Before anyone can utilize these extraordinary data repositories, however, they must first harness and manage their data stores, and do so utilizing technologies that underscore affordability, security, and scalability.
