Post ANI Testbed a 100-Gigbit Highway for Science

Linda Vu from Lawrence Berkeley Labs writes thatthe Advanced Networking Initiative (ANI) has created a 100 Gbps national prototype network and a wide-area network testbed that is changing how researchers think about moving Big Data.

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.'
