Pegasus and AtlanticWave-SDX Help Orchestrating Science Applications
April 5, 2021

 

For global-scale scientific applications, Open Exchange Points (OXP)  are the critical communication infrastructure to connect the compute resources and the data intensive instruments that are often located in different continents. For nearly a decade, Software Defined Networking (SDN) has been introduced into the OXP domains to create a Software Defined eXchange (SDX) that can dramatically improve the network utilization, programmability, and the efficiency to manage network resources. This opens the door to allow the resource orchestrator and application software to make the best use of the networking capabilities in real time. The collaboration between the Pegasus and AtlanticWave-SDX (AW-SDX) projects demonstrates our vision to develop an end-to-end resource orchestration framework that will enable intelligent interactions between the scientific workflows and the network substrate … Read More

BELLA: the EllaLink cable between South America and Europe and the future expansion of RedClara
January 11, 2021

In 2021 South America will be able to count for the first time on a latest-generation submarine communication cable system directly connected to Europe. On December 14th, 2020, EllaLink, owner of the submarine cable of the same name, and Alcatel Submarine Networks (ASN), responsible for the manufacture and deployment of the cable system, carried out the anchorage of the EllaLink cable at the Beach of the Future in Fortaleza, capital of the Brazilian state of Ceará. The connection between Fortaleza and Sines in Portugal, a distance of around 6000 km, is expected to be completed in January 2021, and the resulting cable is expected to be ready for service (RFS) in the second quarter of 2021 … Read More
