​perfSONAR reaches a new milestone – over 1,100 nodes live on the network


14 May 2015 | Cambridge, UK


The combined work of GÉANT, Internet2, ESnet and Indiana University has been given a huge vote of confidence by the R&E Networking community with over 1,100 perfSONAR nodes now live since its release on 7th October.

With the combining of the parallel perfSONAR MDM and PS developments, the new unified perfSONAR is going from strength to strength. The latest version of perfSONAR (3.4) now incorporates core perfSONAR MDM components and demonstrates the combined power of a single development team.



​“The enthusiastic response to the new perfSONAR 3.4 has been fantastic and really shows the demand within the R&E community for this service. By working together we can deliver a great service that the users need.” Domenico Vicinanza, Product Manager, GÉANT.

By tracking performance across and between domains it is now possible to identify and rectify any potential performance bottlenecks, helping research teams focus their efforts on their research and allows NRENs to identify where investments in new capacity will provide the best return. With over 1,100 measurement points across the globe, it is now far easier for NRENs and research teams to accurately measure the performance of the network and ensure the networks meet their research needs.
