Streaming a blockbuster movie in 4K means sending 15 gigabytes of data to your home in two hours. Argonne National Laboratory researchers recently moved approximately 23,000 times more data (more than 340 terabytes) in the same amount of time from Dallas, Texas, to Chicago, Illinois. The transfer was part of a demonstration that took place at SC18, an annual international conference for high-performance computing, networking, storage and analysis.
