High Energy Physicists Set New Record for Network Data Transfer

The record-setting demonstration was made possible through the use of seven 10 Gbps links to SC07 provided by SCInet, CENIC, National Lambda Rail, and Internet2, together with a fully populated Cisco 6500E series switch-router, 10 gigabit Ethernet network interfaces provided by Intel and Myricom, and a fiber channel disk array provided Data Direct Networks equipped with 4 Gbps host bus adapters from QLogic. The server equipment consisted of 36 widely available Supermicro systems using dual quad-core Intel Xeon processors, and Western Digital SATA disks.
