The Paris Project-Team is involved in the VTHD ++ Metacomputing Sub-Project. We study code coupling and high-bandwidth data transfer between distant clusters. We have demonstrated a sustained transfer rate of 1.9 Gb/s between a PC cluster located in Rennes and another cluster located in Sophia-Antipolis (1000 km far apart) within a coupled numerical simulation.
