SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 27 — Ethernet Technology Summit, a premier Silicon Valley conference focused on the use of Ethernet throughout networking spaces, occurs April 2-4 at the Santa Clara Marriott Hotel. Key topics this year include software-defined networking (SDN) and OpenFlow, 40/100/400 GbE, convergence, cloud computing, virtualization, big data, and high-performance networks.
Important keynotes will be presented by:
There will also be two days of in-depth SDN/Open Flow seminars, full day forums on 10/40/400 GbE and Convergence on Ethernet, and half-day forums on Ethernet in Data Centers, Ethernet and Virtualization, and Ethernet and Cloud Computing, as well as exhibits, a celebration of Ethernet's 40th anniversary, and the IT Brand Pulse awards (voted on by major data center end users).
"Ethernet keeps advancing, and the Ethernet Technology Summit continues to be the best place to track what is happening in the industry," said Conference Chair and Cisco Systems Fellow Claudio DeSanti. "This year we have expanded the seminar on software-defined networking (SDN) and OpenFlow to two days and have added sessions on accelerating big data, developing top-performance Ethernet networks, and next-generation power and cooling."
Sessions in the SDN/OpenFlow seminars cover network architecture, OpenFlow, carrier networks, applications, software, and implementations. Panels deal with end user perspectives and future trends. Speakers represent such industry leaders as Intel, Cisco, Broadcom, Dell, IBM, HP, Spirent, Brocade, Big Switch Networks, Orange France Telecom, and many others.
Other key sessions include a VC Forum with leading VCs focused on SDN startups, a market research session with major analysts, the popular Beer Pizza session with access to experts on a one-on-one informal basis, and coverage of Carrier Ethernet, lost packets, and next-generation power and cooling.
About the Ethernet Technology Summit
Ethernet Technology Summit focuses on the use of Ethernet throughout the networking space. This includes the emergence of 10-Gigabit Ethernet as a key LAN technology on the desktop and in data centers. It also covers the 40-Gigabit and 100-Gigabit Ethernet standards and standards efforts beyond 100GbE. Furthermore, it includes the use of Ethernet as a carrier backbone and transport method, as well as in storage applications. Other topics of interest include virtualization, cloud computing, and Data Center Ethernet. The Summit offers keynotes, seminars, forums, tutorials, an expert table session, exhibits, and receptions with the aim of presenting expert speakers and encouraging networking and the flow of information.
About Conference ConCepts
Conference ConCepts, organized in 1994, has produced dozens of technical events – mostly focused on the cutting edge of technology in engineering and the computing industry. Our conference experiences have ranged from small events and workshops of a few hundred participants to larger conferences and trade shows of over 5,000 participants.

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.
