Abstract: Developing high performance data intensive applications requires not only high performance computing resources but just as importantly high performance data transport linking them. With emerging 1, 2.5 and 10 Gigabit per second links, there is unprecedented opportunity for creating distributed data intensive applications. In this tutorial, we give an overviw of different protocols for high performance data transport and how to build applications using them.
