Agencies that have made the leap share what they've learned. 31 INTELL ANALYSIS How to share, but protect, classified data Air Force, industry create SecureView, which keeps data feeds separate while all on one screen. Need a faster WAN? You could try this. A problem in many data centers is that, although high speeds are eas- ily achieved within the data center itself, moving data out to users over a WAN can still create bottlenecks. Aspera and Intel tackled that problem recently, achieving over 10 gigbits/sec over a WAN. Aspera used Intel platforms with the Data Direct I/O technology (DDIO) found in Xeon processors along with Aspera's fasp trans- fer software. The combination of hardware and software lets Intel Ethernet controllers route I/O traf c directly to the processor cache with built-in support for Single-Root I/O Virtualization. It works regardless of whether the hardware platform is physical or virtualized. The end result was a 300 percent perfor- mance increase. A key is that Aspera's fasp trans- port technology, which operates independent of TCP and network latency, really has no theoretical throughput limit. It's only limited by the hardware it runs on and the LAN or WAN capacity. So adding Intel hardware speci cally designed to help with large data transfers would likely improve performance when used with fasp. For agencies trying to add more content to their WAN while main- taining speed, the fasp protocol combined with Xeon E5-2600 chips (standard on many servers and workstations) could help eliminate content bottlenecks. --- John Breeden II GCN SEPTEMBER 2013 • GCN.COM 3 SEPTEMBER 2013 22 Inside
