Euro HPC steps up with GÉANT2

The speed of collaborative research based on Europe’s network of supercomputers has become quicker than ever thanks to a new major upgrade. The EU-funded project, Distributed European Infrastructure for Supercomputing Applications (DEISA), has increased its connectivity speeds ten-fold to 10 gigabits per second, through the GÉANT2 pan-European research and education network.
DEISA aims to provide scientific researchers with access to a European cluster of state-of-the-art high-performance computing (HPC) resources. The ‘private network’ of point-to-point links deployed by GÉANT2 should enable researchers to gain faster and more efficient access to DEISA’s shared file system, which in turn supports ground-breaking applications in computational sciences. DEISA’s goal is to create an integrated European HPC ecosystem before the end of the decade. Full Story


About Rich
FlexRex began his life as a cartoon character I created a Sun Microsystems. As the world's first "fictional blogger," he appeared in numerous parody films that made fun of the whole work-from-home thing. Somewhere along the line, the Sun IT department adopted FlexRex as their spokesman in a half-dozen security awareness films for employees. So when I left Sun recently, I started FlexRex Communications, a Marketing company in Portland, Oregon.
