High speed WAN data transfers for science

In this presentation we describe the current state of the art in equipment, software and methods for transferring large scientific datasets at high speed around the globe. We describe our recent developments in collaboration with industrial partners, in which we are attempting to transfer High Energy Physic data files from disk servers at CERN via a 10 Gbit/s network path to disk servers at Caltech in California (a distance of 11,000 kilometres), at a rate exceeding 1 GByte per second. We describe some solutions being used to overcome networking and hardware performance issues.
