HAMBURG, Germany, June 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- At ISC'12, the international conference for high performance computing, networking, storage and analysis, a ground breaking demonstration of a content distribution and "Large Data" solution, architected with leading edge technology from Orange Silicon Valley, Bay Microsystems, and Xyratex is being shown. The demonstration shows hundreds of HD videos being distributed over 11,000Km utilizing a 40Gbps link with high-performance servers rendering high quality wall-of-video.
This video distribution demonstration builds on the highly publicized Orange Silicon Valley and Bay Microsystems SCINet SC'11 showcase where a number of "Large Data" applications were shown running between multiple sites located over 11,000 optical Km apart using the Department of Energy's Energy Sciences Network ( ESnet).
Several hundred high resolution, HD 1080p, videos are being stored, accessed, distributed and rendered on the video wall over the multi-site Lustre FS running on just two Xyratex ClusterStor™ 3000 SSU's. The Lustre FS uses global reach extensions and RDMA, provided by Xyratex, to distribute and stream jitter free, low-latency content over long distances. Using the Bay Microsystems IBEx™ M40 WAN optimization gateway, the native server fabric is extended as if the servers were in the same location. This is the first time anywhere that such large amounts of multi-session, multi-media data is being accessed and rendered in a dynamic and long-range network situation. Uses for such capability are seen to extend far beyond content distribution."The Bay Microsystems IBEx family of WAN optimization gateways are being used to literally redefine WAN networking by seamlessly addressing the fundamentals of optical link utilization and efficiency by providing an ultra-low latency, lossless WAN fabric where enterprise and carrier networks get the optimal use of the facilities," said Gerry Jankauskas, Bay CTO. By first addressing the network efficiency and allowing the full link bandwidth to be used under any condition; then providing application-specific acceleration and security, companies and service providers are applying these significant benefits to the broader "Large Data" spectrum of network challenges. The Bay IBEx is for the first time allowing customers to optimize latency on their dedicated financial services networks, provide seamless data-center consolidation and global access, allow global data collaboration, distribute growing amounts of media content, and overall provide scalable infrastructure for the massive trend of cloud storage and computing.
