    LEIPZIG, Germany -- 50 Gigabytes of data per second across vast distances: A collaboration of industry and research co-managed by T-Systems and Alcatel-Lucent, Introduced at this year's International Supercomputing Conference in Leipzig a collaboration of industry and research co-managed by T-Systems and Alcatel-Lucent showed the way ahead. Optical data transmission at top performance levels, combined with high-speed flash memory technologies and a distributed high-performance file system, allow applications to communicate with one another using a 400 Gbit/s data path in a world premiere. The demonstration proves that data-intensive projects can be distributed and processed effectively even over great distances. It also opens up new opportunities for data security in the event of a disaster.


    The project participants are Alcatel-Lucent, Barracuda Networks, Bull, Clustervision, German Aerospace Center (DLR), EMC, IBM, Leibniz Supercomputing Centre, Max Planck Institute for Meteorology, Mellanox Technologies, Garching Computing Center of the Max Planck Society, Telekom Innovation Laboratories, T-Systems, Center for Information Services and High Performance Computing at TU Dresden.
