DREN to receive supercomputing boost

Supercomputer network to get speed upgrade

Researchers using the Defense Research and Engineering Network (DREN) will be getting a productivity boost when the service upgrades to 40 gigabit/sec.

DREN securely connects five Defense Department supercomputing facilities to 4,300 scientists in over 150 agencies.   Fully IPv6-enabled, DREN currently provides connectivity through a mix of Ethernet, IP and optical wavelength services, with speeds varying accordingly. The Navy DOD Supercomputing Resource Center at NASA's John C. Stennis Space Center in Mississippi, which operates national test facilities for the rocket engine propulsion programs, will be the first of five DREN locations to receive 40 gigabit/sec service.

CenturyLink and LGS Innovations will be performing the upgrade.
