Arcitecta has announced that Mediaflux has been awarded the “Most Complete Solution” and “Best Software Architecture” by the International Data Mover Challenge (DMC) at this week’s Supercomputing Asia 2022 (SCA22) event. Arcitecta was also recognized for its pioneering work in accelerating high-speed data transfer across global networks, enabling the transfer of data between two or more global destinations in parallel at the speed of light.
“The amount of data transmitted around the globe has grown exponentially over the past 30 years, as well as the amount of data produced,” said Jason Lohrey, chief technology officer of Arcitecta. “The annual International DMC represents an opportunity to identify applications that can push the limits of what is currently possible to benefit crucial research endeavors in life sciences and other industries that acquire and transfer vast amounts of data. We’re extremely pleased to have received the DMC awards in recognition of what Arcitecta has been able to accomplish through extensive years of experience in developing world-class data management platforms.”
Andrew Howard, chief judge of the DMC and associate director of cloud services at the National Computational Infrastructure (NCI), said “One of the major differentiators of Mediaflux was that it is a solution that not only tested the engineering of the network but can make fundamental changes and experiment on the fly at the network stack level, proving its capabilities regardless of the underlying technologies.”
The International DMC is an annual competition that aims to bring together experts from industry and academia to test software and solutions for transferring huge amounts of research data. The annual DMC provides an opportunity to identify world-leading applications that can adapt to upcoming technologies and push the limits of what is currently possible on that underlying capability. The competition is essential for preparing the next generation of IT groups to maintain the global community’s crucial national research and education networks. It challenges international teams to develop the most advanced and innovative solutions for data transfer across servers located in various countries connected by 100Gbps international research and education networks.
The International DMC competition is a key event of the SupercomputingAsia (SCA) conference series. Co-organized by the HPC Centres from Australia, Japan and Singapore, SCA is an annual international conference that encompasses an umbrella of supercomputing events with the key objective of promoting a vibrant and relevant HPC ecosystem in Asia.
