KISTI expands KISTI-Geneva Sectioin to 10 Gbps

KISTI expands KISTI-Geneva Sectioin to 10 Gbps

KISTI said on April 21st that it will expand its GSDC data bandwidth to 10 Gbps. Korean scientist can receive LHC source data 10 times faster than now and real-time utilization of its data is expected to improve the competitiveness of R&D on basic science. By building up 10Gbps data bandwidth between Daejeon and Geneva, KISTI can transmit 1 PB data in 23 days which took 289 days with 2Gbps before. The expansion of 10 Gbps is a follow-up action of CERN’s approval on April, 2014 of Tier-1 center for Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning(MSIP) and KISTI. KISTI expanded the bandwidth of Daejeon-Chicago section to 10Gbps and secured Chicago-Geneva section by collaborating with “SURFnet” of Netherlands. Korea scientists were not easy to access to CERN In the meantime, Korean scientists were not easy to approach CERN and used to suffer from data delay till now.

KISTI-NVIDIA signs MOU for MPCC

KISTI-NVIDIA signs MOU for MPCC

Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information (KISTI) and NVIDIA signed an MOU on Aug. 6th for the construction of KISTI-NVIDIA MPCC, Massively Parallel Computing Center. More Massively Parallel Computers using GPU(Graphic Processing Unit) are now listed on the TOP 500 Supercomputer List, and are being actively researched and utilized as the next generation of Supercomputing Architecture. Domestically, however, not many related studies are underway due to the lack of professional manpower. Through the signing of this MOU, KISTI-NVIDIA MPCC plan to operate GPU based Massively Parallel Computer expert training program. Moreover, MPCC will build a GPU exclusive system for developing and utilizing the new generation Massively Parallel Computer. Dr. Jysoo Lee, Head of KISTI National Supercomputing R&D Division noted: "MOU between KISTI National Supercomputing R&D Division and the global-leading corporation NVIDIA is much expected to amplify the synergy in training domestic experts and invigorating related research."
