100 Gigabit per second networks such as DOE's Advanced Network Initiative(ANI), Internet2's 100G network and proposed DOE Terabit network represent a major step forward in wide area network performance. However, moving data across the wire at 100 gigabits/s is not same as reliably transferring a petabyte of data in a day end-to-end. When considering sustained end-to-end
performance rather than instantaneous network performance, numerous additional issues arise that, if not adequately addressed, will render these ultra high speed networks unusable for most users. These additional issues include a need for closer coordination of various components in the end-to-end path including the storage and compute resources at the end systems, network and transport protocols. In this talk, I will provide a brief overview of our past work in high-speed data movement including GridFTP and Globus Online and go into the details of some of the challenges with the upcoming ultra high speed networks.

Speaker Bio:

Rajkumar Kettimuthu is a fellow at the Computation Institute, Argonne National Laboratory and University of Chicago. His research interests are intransport protocols for high-speed networks, bulk data movement in distributed systems. He is the technology coordinator for Globus GridFTP. He also works on Globus Online, a service that makes bulk data movement simple. He has published more than 40 articles in the areas of Grid/Distributed computing and high performance computing. He has served on the program committee for more than 50 international conferences and workshops. He is a senior member of both IEEE and ACM.
