This is a 8 node testbed that helps us better understand the challenges in large data applications and deploy cutting-edge protocols. It reaches locations such as Atmospheric and Computer Science Departments at Colorado State University, LBNL, NWCS, and CalTech.
The testbed is connected via 10G links with machines that have 40 cores each, 128GB RAM and 48TB disk space. The testbed is also able to deploy on-demand end-to-end paths using OSCARS. The machines cumulatively host over 50TB of climate data and 10 TB Physics data that we use for research, experimentation and development of next-generation science data management applications.
