New data speed record

Michael Kanellos reports that the High Energy Physics team won the Supercomputing Bandwidth Challenge by shuttling data at a sustained rate of 101 gigabits--the equivalent of three DVD movies--per second between Pittsburgh and Los Angeles....According to Harvey Newman, professor of physics at the California Institute of Technology and team leader, transfer rates of 130gbps to 140gbps are likely possible...
