Finisar Showcases Optical Interconnect Portfolio for HPC Applications at ISC'14

Optics Leader Also Demonstrates New 100G Quadwire(R) EDR Active Optical Cable for Next Generation of Supercomputers

SUNNYVALE, CA and LEIPZIG, GERMANY -- (Marketwired) -- 06/23/14 -- Finisar Corporation (NASDAQ: FNSR) today announced that it will display its market-leading product portfolio of optical interconnects, optimized for demanding High-Performance Computing (HPC) applications, at the International Supercomputing Conference 2014 (ISC'14). These optical interconnects, based on 10G, 14G, and 25G per channel solutions, leverage Finisar's patented fiber optic technology for the transmission of high-speed data with enhanced signal integrity, higher density, lower power consumption, smaller bend radius and longer reach than traditional copper solutions. Finisar will also feature a live demonstration of its next generation 100 Gb/s Quadwire ® Active Optical Cable (AOC). The 100G Quadwire AOC is based on the industry-standard QSFP28 module form factor, running four parallel lanes of 25 Gb/s to enable the next generation of InfiniBand EDR-based supercomputers. See Finisar's interconnect portfolio and live AOC demonstration at booth #462 from June 23-25 at ISC'14 in Leipzig, Germany.

Finisar's display of world class optical interconnects will include 10G SFP+, 40G QSFP+, 100G QSFP28, and 100G CXP hot pluggable transceivers; 10G, 40G, 56G and 100G Active Optical Cables; and 120G to 600G Board-mounted Optical Assembly (BOA) products. These products support all common communication protocols including InfiniBand, Ethernet, SAS, PCIe, and Fibre Channel, and can be used in a wide range of applications including High-Performance Computing and Next Generation Data Centers.

"As the world's largest supplier of optical communication components and subsystems, we are extremely pleased to display our family of optical interconnects this year at ISC," said Steffen Koehler, senior product line manager at Finisar Corporation. "Our live demonstration of the 100G Quadwire active cable for InfiniBand EDR and 100G Ethernet clearly shows our continued focus to expand our portfolio of high-speed optics into the HPC and datacenter markets, leveraging Finisar's world class internal VCSEL technology."

The 100G Quadwire AOC is currently sampling. For more information about this and other interconnect products powering the next generation of HPC applications, visit www.finisaropticsforhpc.com. For additional details about ISC'14, visit www.isc-events.com/isc14/#.

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...
Most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes a lot of work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reduction in cost ...
My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress.

Keeping pace with advancements in software delivery processes and tooling is taxing even for the most proficient organizations. Point tools, platforms, open source and the increasing adoption of private and public cloud services requires strong engineering rigor - all in the face of developer demands to use the tools of choice.

MongoDB Atlas leverages VPC peering for AWS, a service that allows multiple VPC networks to interact. This includes VPCs that belong to other AWS account holders. By performing cross account VPC peering, users ensure networks that host and communicate their data are secure. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Jay Gordon, a Developer Advocate at MongoDB, will explain how to properly architect your VPC using existing AWS tools and then peer with your MongoDB Atlas cluster. He'll discuss the secur...
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
