The Force10 TeraScale E300 delivers the high Gigabit and 10 Gigabit Ethernet densities that GLORIAD requires to seamlessly scale traffic without compromising performance.
In addition to providing the GLORIAD international links, StarLight also relies on the 10 Gigabit Ethernet density of the Force10 TeraScale E-Series within its own network to ensure high-performance, flexible peering.
The Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information (KISTI), South Korea's national supercomputer center, also deployed the Force10 TeraScale E-Series in its grid network to connect the country with scientists and researchers worldwide via GLORIAD.
Part of the GLORIAD project and Korea's own government initiatives to build a next-generation information infrastructure, this international grid will connect scientific organizations in Korea with similar groups in Russia, China, the United States, the Netherlands, Korea and Canada.
As part of that initiative and to play a major role in advancing research and development around the world, KISTI is connecting its supercomputer resources to the GLORIAD grid.
