UCAR Deploys ADVA FSP 3000 CloudConnect™ Solution in Supercomputing Network
ADVA Optical Networking’s DCI Technology Provides 200G Connectivity to Atmosphere Research Facility
A truly open DCI platform with no lock-ins or restrictions, the ADVA FSP 3000 meets all of UCAR’s density, security and energy demands.
The ADVA FSP 3000 CloudConnect™ platform gives UCAR the ability to maximize the throughput of its optical layer and offers scalability for future growth. While incorporating advanced technology, but at the same time being simple to utilize, it reduces UCAR’s operational complexity. The ADVA FSP 3000 CloudConnect™ solution is a truly open DCI platform with no lock-ins or restrictions. It also meets density, security and energy demands, helping UCAR to accelerate the pace of scientific discovery. As a preeminent institution for atmosphere research, UCAR will leverage the new capabilities and efficiencies to offer the scientific community even more access to computing and data analysis platforms. Over 100 universities and research centers in the UCAR consortium will benefit from improved access to Cheyenne, helping them to better understand the atmosphere in ways that can help safeguard society.
“We’ve developed a close relationship with UCAR over many years. That’s why it’s been an honor to help them unleash the full potential of their state-of-the-art supercomputer. And it’s exciting to achieve this with our FSP 3000 CloudConnect™ solution – the pinnacle of all our innovation and expertise,” commented John Scherzinger, senior VP, sales, North America, ADVA Optical Networking. “Our team is passionate about efficiency, especially when it comes to energy. The DCI solution we’ve created here will deliver UCAR significant savings in terms of price, power and space. Not only is that great news for UCAR’s operating costs – it also helps protect the environment.”
