The Dept. of Energy's Energy Sciences Network does double duty
Brookhaven not only has the Energy Sciences Network over which to connect to Amazon at 100 Gbs, but it also has, compliments of that network two 320 Gbs lines to Europe over which it can exchange data with European partners. The high speed communications make collaborative research much more feasible.

Brookhaven liked AWS memory-intensive virtual servers
The Brookhaven Lab gravitated toward the memory-intensive virtual server types in its Spot Instances. They included the R3 double extra-large, R3 quadruple extra-large, and R3 8X extra-large instances; the latter comes with two 320 GB solid state disks. Also used was the M3 double extra large server, a balanced compute, memory and networked server used with many different applications, lead scientist Ernst reported.
