SALT LAKE CITY, Nov. 12 – NASA is demonstrating 100 gigabit per second (Gbps) networking for delivering scientific datasets, climate analysis, environmental data, and atmospheric predictions. Designed for SC12, a supercomputing conference taking place this week, the demonstration relies on cPacket Networks for monitoring performance and for reliability assurance.
“High speed networks are important for our efforts to expand our supercomputing and cloud infrastructure,” said Paul Lang, Senior Networking Engineer from the High End Computer Networking Group (HECN) NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. “These higher speed networks are mission critical and it is important to monitor them in real time to identify any performance bottlenecks or application behavior anomalies, which interfere with our mission.”
This demonstration was developed by the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center and the NASA Ames Research Center. The big data for space, climate, and other earthbound studies is processed by supercomputers. cPacket’s technology enables real time monitoring and granular performance measurement of networks, clouds, and distributed applications. It helps identify issues before they can impact the computing infrastructure that makes NASA’s work possible.
cPacket is providing NASA its cVu Traffic Monitoring switches for this demonstration.
cPacket Networks is the emerging leader in systems and technologies for Pervasive Network Intelligence. Utilizing its unique cPacket chip and software architecture, cPacket provides network monitoring and response solutions at a fraction of the complexity, power, and cost of preexisting approaches. The exploding use of 10 Gbps networks and beyond to support a relentless growth in media-centric applications, cloud applications, and data centers makes the availability of truly pervasive network intelligence timely and critical.
