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/#.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jason Mondanaro, Director, Product Management at Metanga, discussed how you can plan to cooperate, partner, and form lasting all-star teams to change the world...
Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction. ...
Internet of Things is moving from being a hype to a reality.

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.
The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...
