CALIENT Data Center vCluster Networks

 Today’s software-defined data centers use virtualization and centralized storage to boost performance. Data centers need to further disaggregate their server components — CPUs, GPUs, memory. CALIENT’s vCluster solution uses optical circuit switches to allow the data center operator to configure compute nodes dynamically using just the resources each needs to avoid stranding resources.

CALIENT 3D MEMS Optical Circuit Switching Demonstration

This video shows an animated demonstration of how CALIENT’s 3D MEMS Optical Circuit Switching technology switches light from any input port to any output port without OEO conversion. The animation shows a 12 port example (12 inputs, 12 outputs), however in reality CALIENT’s S320 switch family supports up to 320 port capacity.
