Attending SC16? Check out these 2 high-speed demos


ESnet is collaborating with Stanford University and SLAC to present two presentations and demonstrations of high speed data transfer as part of the SC16 conference. If you’re in Salt Lake City, drop by and watch the data fly.Please also forward this invitation to others that may be interested.

3-4 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 15, in  the Stanford/SLAC booth #2101 we will be presenting three talks on:

  1. The science (Linear Coherent Light Source-II) needs to transfer regularly massive amounts of data (1 Tbit/sec by 2024) from the experiment in Menlo Park (SLAC) to an Exascale computer in Berkeley (NERSC)
  2. How ESnet is enabling distributed data intensive science and hence LCLS-II
  3. A demonstration of transferring Lots of Small Files data motivated by LCLS’s need for semi real-time transfer and access to the data acquisition system’s output.

11 a.m.-12 noon Wednesday, Nov. 16, in the Department of Energy booth #1030 we will be demonstrating high-speed file-to-file transfers.

This will include a cost effective, energy and space efficient, high availability forward looking software and data transfer system reference design for high speed file transfer. We will demonstrate:

  • Over the LAN file to file data transfer of 10 x100GiB files over 2 x 100Gbps links.
  • Over the wide area (122ms link) with a 70Gbps ESnet OSCARS shared circuit including Lots of Small Files  (1 million  x 1MByte files) transfer with and without TLS encryption
