Making Big Data DANCE(S)
XSEDE Project Successfully Tests Scheduled Networking of Big Data
July 22, 2016
A project to make movement of the largest datasets more efficient has tested for the first time networking hardware components necessary for scheduling network bandwidth using Software Defined Networking (SDN). Researchers from the National Science Foundation’s XSEDE collaboration of supercomputing sites reported at the XSEDE16 conference in Miami how they tested transfer of Big Data between two XSEDE sites, the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC) and the National Institute for Computational Sciences (NICS) at the University of Tennessee.
