Konrad-Zuse-Zentrum speeds up data
storage transfer for high-performance
computers with the Cisco Nexus 5020
No speed limit for Supercomputers
The Konrad-Zuse-Zentrum, also known as the Zuse Institute Berlin (ZIB),
has installed two innovative Nexus 5020 switches from Cisco on its
high-performance network. For the first time ever, the new components
combine storage area network (SAN) and IP-based data traffic in the
same unit. By using the Cisco® Nexus 5000, ZIB has very cost effectively
increased the speed at which huge volumes of data are transported to
and from its in-house supercomputer. This particularly benefits the many
scientific institutions that use the supercomputer for tasks such as materials
and climate research in cooperation with ZIB. This modernisation project,
therefore, promises to improve the potential for innovation for the German
research community as a whole.
Powerhouse for cutting-edge research in Northern Germany
Probably everyone in the world benefits from the work of Konrad Zuse, the creator
of the binary floating point. His innovation forms the basis for all conventional
