It took us approximately 30 minutes to move 35 terabytes of climate data over a wide-area 100 Gbps network. This is a great accomplishment,‚?? said Mehmet Balman of Berkeley Lab‚??s Scientific Data Management group.¬*‚??On a 10 Gbps network, it would have taken five hours to move this much data across the country.‚??
