When HPC Source magazine contacted Berkeley Lab for suggestions on who to profile as an HPC innovator, ESnet network engineer Chin Guok fit the bill. Guok is the technical lead for OSCARS, ESnet’s On-Demand Secure Circuits and Advance Reservation System. OSCARS allows users to quickly configure multi-domain, high-bandwidth virtual circuits that guarantee end-to-end network data transfer performance. Although the subject of Software Defined Networking, or SDN, is now a hot topic in the networking community, through his work with OSCARS, Guok has been helping lay the foundation for SDN since 2004.
