Super Computing 2014 Conference is coming up fast in New Orleans (Nov.16th - 21st) and Brocade will be there (Booth 2145). Its been a few years since I've visited New Orleans and am looking forward to finding and eating at the birth place of the Muffuletta sandwich (Central Grocery @ 923 Decatur St.).

 

For SuperComputing 2014, Brocade will be hosting presentations or conversations with customers and partners who are expanding scale, speed, and virtualization of IP to solve today’s and tomorrow’s challenges. Below is a list of the presentations or conversations that go on each day. Be sure to check out the schedule at the Brocade booth:

 

CalTech: Provide an overview on now CalTech-lead group of universities have designed a Terabit/sec. infrastructure (using OpenDayLight Controller) to manage consistent delivery of petabytes of scientific data between researchers across the world.

 

Ciena: Deliver an overview of the Brocade-Ciena Solution leverages Brocade’s Application Resource Broker (ARB) to automate resources between data centers and Ciena’s V-WAN to control network transport. The joint solution enables data centers to dynamically change and control network topology and computing resources in seconds in any location(s).

 

Lenovo: Lenovo will discuss how they are delivering greater HPC scale with their NeXtScale and Linux Containers for application management and Lustre filesystem

 

Indiana University (GlobalNOC): Deliver an overview of SciPass. SciPass is an OpenFlow based implementation of Science DMZ architecture capable of operating at 100Gbps with integrated active security features and adaptive resource management.

Internet2: Will provide an overview on the recently announced “FlowSpace Firewall” now in production on the Internet2 infrastructure.  FlowSpace Firewall enables OpenFlow capabilities to be partitioned and protected across nearly forty 100G-attached access nodes across the US.

 

NERSC: Join NERSC for an overview and discussion about their requirements for a Science DMZ, their implementation using brocade MLXe and VDX, and designs options they are looking toward for the future.

 

Penn State University: Will present an overview on Performance Driven SDN using sFlow and Hybrid OpenFlow for Large Research Data Flows on MLX routers and VDX switches for massive data flows being exchanged by researchers.

 

After each presentation or conversation there will be time for Q&A so don't be shy about asking questions.  Brocade will also have Technical staff on-site so if you have questions about Brocade MLXe/CER routers, ICX/VDX switches and the new Vyatta Controller (ODL-based SDN Controller)..... don't be shy about asking questions.

 

So make sure you stop by the Brocade booth and chat! We'd love to talk with you about your network and where you want to take it.
