Virtual File System Will Save Vast Computer Storage Space by Processing Images on the Fly

July 19, 2016

Researchers analyzing complex multidimensional images may be able to save hundreds of terabytes of disk space, a team from PSC reported at the XSEDE16 supercomputing conference in Miami today. Their “virtual file system” software now in development will carry out image processing on the fly, for any viewing software, saving vast data storage by making it unnecessary to maintain multiple copies of processed datasets.
