1 Grids and Biology: A Natural and Happy Pairing Rick Stevens Director, Mathematics and Computer Science Division Argonne National Laboratory Professor, Department of Computer Science Director, Computation Institute The University of Chicago

2 TeraGrid [40 Gbit/s] DWDM Wide Area Network NCSA/UIUC ANL UIC Multiple Carrier Hubs Starlight / NW Univ Ill Inst of Tech Univ of Chicago Indianapolis (Abilene NOC) I-WIRE StarLight International Optical Peering Point (see Los Angeles San Diego DTF Backbone Abilene Chicago Indianapolis Urbana OC-48 (2.5 Gb/s, Abilene) Multiple 10 GbE (Qwest) Multiple 10 GbE (I-WIRE Dark Fiber) Solid lines in place and/or available by October 2001 Dashed I-WIRE lines planned for summer 2002

4 OptIPuter Hosting on TeraGrid One way to think of TeraGrid is a hosting environment to support virtual OptIPuters OptIPuter can be viewed as an overlay on TeraGrid resources combining a collection of compute, data and visualization resources via optical networking.

5 Super Networks Enable New Applications Database blasting Gimme the whole thing and Ill sort it out at my end On-Demand caching for collaborative analysis Spontaneous large-scale tuple spaces.. minning rabbit trails Streaming tiled-displays (>100 Megapixel displays) Super Access Grid.. Lets watch all the digital streams in parallel Deep images Multiresolution, navigable images, movies, gimme all the versions in all the formats

6 Super Network Applications Trickle charging shared petabyte databases Always up-to-date repositories (mirrors, etc.) Persistent objects and cooperative computation that extend persistent objects Gimme all versions of that object that ever existed (dump the cvs repo) Spontaneous peer-to-peer infrastructure Match the structure of infrastructure to the structure of social networks

7 Super Networks Require New Architectures Super high-bandwidth systems have high concurrency Tbps 100x10 Gpbs, 25x40 Gbps etc. Large bandwidth delay products Non-intuitive chunking, based on compute/bdp Large-granularity in transactions (see previous page) Stream processing architectures Flow oriented services become increasingly important

8 Super Network Architecture Implications Speculation Super Networks create a computing and storage commons Increased used of speculation becomes possible Resource (commons) management Personal infrastructure complexity will become a major SW problem Extensions of OS concepts needed
