SC11 SCinet Research Sandbox
SCinet consistently provides a leading edge, high-performance network assembled to support the high-performance computing, storage and networking needs of the exhibitors and attendees of the SC conference series. In addition to supporting the extreme demands of the HPC-based demonstrations that have become the trademark of the conference, SCinet also seeks to foster and highlight developments in network research which is critical infrastructure for connecting high-performance, distributed computing resources.
The SCinet Research Sandbox (SRS) is a joint effort with the SC11 Technical Program that will allow researchers with innovative network approaches to experimentally test their ideas in the unique environment of the SCinet network. The SC11 SRS will for the first time feature a 10 Gbps, multi-vendor OpenFlow network testbed (see http://www.openflowswitch.org). OpenFlow allows the creation of software-defined network policy. The ability to program the network stands to be a significant innovation in HPC, an arena that depends on, and pushes, the capabilities of network infrastructure.
SRS has accepted 10 submissions to the program. The top six will be showcased as part of the Disruptive Technologies sessions in the technical program.
