The Data Exacell

Data Exacell Components

The Data Exacell (DXC) is a research pilot project to create, deploy, and test software and hardware building blocks to enable data analytics in scientific research.  The DXC couples analytic resources with innovative storage to allow communities that traditionally have not used HPC to create valuable new applications.

Pilot applications in data-intensive research areas are being used to motivate, test, demonstrate, and improve the DXC building blocks.  These projects span research areas from radio astronomy to the digital humanities, including genomics,  data-intensive frameworks,  biology, and epidemiology.
