<img style=”float: left;” src=”http://media2.hpcwire.com/hpcwire/HOTI_logo.bmp” alt=”” width=”140″ height=”80″ />This August, the IEEE is hosting its annual symposium on high-performance interconnects, known as Hot Interconnects. Now in its 20th year, the event focuses on the latest developments in the field with a special emphasis on how the technology is advancing in the realm of supercomputing and large-scale datacenters. The event covers both chip-to-chip interconnects as well as networking fabrics that bind whole systems and datacenters together.

Brocade Sees Quick Ramp-Up of 100 GbE in Academia and Research

Jan 10, 2012 |

<img style=”float: left;” src=”http://media2.hpcwire.com/hpcwire/LHC_small.jpg” alt=”” width=”125″ height=”94″ />Pent-up demand for network bandwidth at both the core and edge of the datacenter is good news for suppliers of 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) routers. And although Brocade was not the first vendor to market with such gear, it has quickly become one of the largest providers of 100 GbE ports, a lot of which are ending up in science and research networks. Organizations such as CERN, Indiana University and the Howard Hughes Medical Center are already employing the technology to power performance-demanding applications
