100Gb/s demonstrated in live traffic running over Internet2 network
SUNNYVALE, Calif., Nov. 16 -- Infinera will be showing new technologies and products that continue to lead the optical networking industry at the SC09 conference in Portland, Ore. As the first and only company producing optical systems based on large-scale photonic integration, Infinera offers the scalability and flexibility to meet exponentially growing bandwidth demand from the Internet's power users like the research and education community.
At the Infinera booth at SC09, conference attendees will be able to see a pre-production 100 Gigabit Ethernet Module, designed to deliver 100GbE services in today's Infinera DTN and over today's network infrastructure. Also at SC09, Infinera will show its new metro edge platform, the Infinera ATN, which extends the benefits of Infinera's Digital Optical Networks architecture across the network, from the core to the metro edge.
Infinera continues to lead the industry in the race to 100 Gigabit Ethernet. At this year's SC09, Infinera is participating in a joint demonstration with Internet2, Level 3 Communications, and Juniper Networks involving interoperation between the Infinera DTN and a Juniper T1600 Series Core Router. Infinera's Bandwidth Virtualization architecture is designed to provide the flexibility and scalability to enable a wide range of services, including potential future 100GbE services, to be delivered over today's infrastructure. Infinera is working closely with others in the industry to ensure a complete solution for 100GbE, working on issues including industry standards as well as testing and network deployment. Infinera's current generation of photonic integrated circuits (PICs) put 100 Gb/s of capacity on every Infinera DTN line card. Infinera's next-generation PICs, designed with capacity of 400 Gb/s on a pair of chips integrating more than 400 optical elements, will enable a significant increase in the capacity and scalability of optical networks.
"The Infinera vision enables seamless scalability of the optical layer, with the application of photonic integration technology to enable an ever-increasing pool of intelligent bandwidth," said Infinera chief technology officer Drew Perkins."Our aim is to push the frontiers of the technology forward, while at the same time broadening our product portfolio so our technology can be applied in more parts of the network."
SC09 takes place at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland. Visitors to the show are invited to stop by the booth #1444 to see detailed information on Infinera products, technology, and the company's vision of the future of the network.
The Infinera family of optical solutions includes the Infinera DTN, the first optical system based on large-scale photonic integrated circuits, and the Infinera ATN, a compact metro edge platform that extends the benefits of Infinera's Digital Optical Networks to the metro edge.
Infinera (Nasdaq: INFN) provides Digital Optical Networking systems to telecommunications carriers worldwide. Infinera's systems are unique in their use of a breakthrough semiconductor technology: the photonic integrated circuit (PIC). Infinera's systems and PIC technology are designed to provide customers with simpler and more flexible engineering and operations, faster time-to-service, and the ability to rapidly deliver differentiated services without reengineering their optical infrastructure.

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 Xeon Phi coprocessor might be the new kid on the high performance block, but out of all first-rate kickers of the Intel tires, the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) got the first real jab with its new top ten Stampede system.We talk with the center's Karl Schultz about the challenges of programming for Phi--but more specifically, the optimization...
Although Horst Simon was named Deputy Director of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, he maintains his strong ties to the scientific computing community as an editor of the TOP500 list and as an invited speaker at conferences.

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.

For engineers looking to leverage high-performance computing, the accessibility of a cloud-based approach is a powerful draw, but there are costs that may not be readily apparent.
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.
