SCinet Overview

SCinet: The Fastest Network Connecting the Fastest Computers

New Orleans will once again host of one of the most powerful and advanced networks in the world - SCinet. Created each year for the Conference, SCinet brings to life a very high-capacity network that supports the revolutionary applications and experiments that are a hallmark of the SC Conference. SCinet will link the Convention Center to research and commercial networks around the world. In doing so, SCinet serves as the platform for exhibitors to demonstrate the advanced computing resources of their home institutions and elsewhere by supporting a wide variety of bandwidth-driven applications including supercomputing and cloud computing.

Volunteers from academia, government and industry work together to design and deliver the SCinet infrastructure. Industry vendors and carriers donate millions of dollars in equipment and services needed to build the local and wide area networks. Planning begins more than a year in advance of each SC Conference and culminates in a high-intensity installation in the days leading up to the Conference.


SCinet will also be hosting a workshop, "Innovating the Network for Data Intensive Science," presentations about SC14's showfloor demos and high-performance networking technical papers.
