Linda Vu from Lawrence Berkeley Labs writes that the 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,â€ť said Mehmet Balman of Berkeley Labâ€™s Scientific Data Management group. â€śOn a 10 Gbps network, it would have taken five hours to move this much data across the country.â€ť
