In this video from the DDN User Group at SC16, Marek Michalewicz, Deputy Director, ICM, University of Warsaw, presents: From Singapore to Warsaw: Infinicortex and the Renaissance in Polish Supercomputing.

marek“Over the past two years, InfiniCortex has clearly demonstrated that IB can perform over trans-continental distances, exploiting this technology to create a “Galaxy of Supercomputers,” a worldwide IB network spanning sites across Asia, Europe and North America. Initiated and led by A*STAR CRC in Singapore, the project hit its first major breakthrough at SC14, showcasing a first-time-ever 100G IB transcontinental connection from Singapore to the SC14 venue in New Orleans. This was made possible primarily thanks to the support of TATA Telecommunications, which provided the 100G trans-pacific link from Singapore to the US, and Obisidian Strategics, the Canadian manufacturer of the IB long-range equipment, that made available a number of units to be deployed in the participating sites.”
