University Pioneers Grid Computing and High-Speed Networking
Source: Cisco Systems
The University of Florida contains the business challenge to facilitate faster computations and more conclusive results from multidisciplinary research with collaborate in design and implementation to create a comprehensive leading-edge solution for a reasonable cost and provide leading facilities that strengthen the university's competitive position within global research and education communities. They compute grid with Cisco Server Fabric Switches for high-speed Interconnections, second, larger grid and the introduction of high-speed campus network and links to off-campus research networks. There business results are Shortened simulation times: 100x increase in on-campus compute power and network throughput, Broadened base of researchers who can take advantage of shared HPC grid and networks and Centralized, consolidated compute resources managed by the HPC Center with Industry-leading facilities, strengthening participation in the Open Science Grid (OSG).
