The speed of high-performance research networks has reached tens of gigabits per second and is constantly rising. Unfortunately for scientists and researchers, real-world transfers on these networks achieve barely a fraction of the network's potential.

Net100 is developing a solution that will allow researchers to achieve the highest possible data transfer rates without needing the assistance of networking experts and programmers. Built on Web100 (PSC, NCAR, NCSA) and NetLogger (LBNL), Net100 modifies operating systems to respond dynamically to network conditions and make adjustments in network transfers, sending data as fast as the network will allow.
