ADVA Optical Networking says it has supplied its FSP 3000 CloudConnect data center interconnect platform to the University Corporation for Atmosphere Research (UCAR). UCAR will use the FSP 3000 CloudConnect to transmit scientific data between the NCAR-Wyoming Supercomputing Center in Cheyenne, WY, and the Front Range GigaPop in Denver, CO, via two 200-Gbps 16QAM carriers.
According to the systems house, the increased capacity of this network will help UCAR expand educational opportunities, improve the scientific work of more than 100 universities and research centers in the UCAR consortium, and facilitate a better understanding of the atmosphere.
"This new network helps researchers to analyze large data sets and conduct complex experiments," said Anke Kamrath, director, operations and services, NCAR's Computational and Information Systems Laboratory, UCAR. "Cheyenne is one of the most powerful high-performance computers for the geosciences. It's vital to advancing the understanding of weather, water, and climate."
By deploying the FSP 3000 CloudConnect in this supercomputing network, UCAR says they will meet density, security, and energy demands while improving computing and data analysis among the scientific community. ADVA adds that the FSP 3000 CloudConnect will enable UCAR to save price, power and space.
