  4. 4. Where you are... SARA & Vancis: 40 years of computing National supercomputer HuygensSARA & Nikhef: +10k coresAMS-IX: Maintaining SURFNet Since 1994, with CERN 1997: 4.5 Tbyte total traffic 1998: first IPv6 tests 1998: 26.3 Tbyte total traffic 2003: 22Gbps speed 2006: 1.5 PB per day traffic 2008: 500Gbps speed 2010: +1Tbps speedTier 1 center for CERNs LHC
  5. 5. Where you are...CWI:One of SARAs founding fathersGuido van Rossum (inventor of Python, now Google)Piet Beertema: Connected Netherlands as second country in the world to the internet Registered the first ever TLD, .nl, and administred it for ~10 years
  6. 6. … and the message from our sponsor: BiG Grid National Grid Infrastructure +7k cores ~10PB disk storageWho knows how much tape storage? ~20PB?Umbrella for NIKHEF & SARA to act as tier 1 Sponsor of our Hadoop cluster! Sponsor of our Cloud cluster!
