The network's use by high-performance applications is difficult to evaluate in the real world. To better understand this interaction, leading experts and organizations in ultra-high-performance networking and computing come together once a year to build an intense, diverse, high-performance network. Almost overnight, the SCinet network comes online as a testbed to show-case state-of-the-art network technology at the IEEE/ACM-sponsored supercomputing conference known as SCxy. in the words of one network engineer, the SCinet team challenges application developers to "burn down the world's fastest network." They selected 10 of the most data-intensive applications in 2000 and 12 applications in 2001 for evaluation in a formal judging
