SDSC's 'big data' expertise aiding genomics research
Date:3/20/2012

idual therapies, and SDSC is now set up assist in reaching that goal," said Norman.

Not Just Supercomputers

In addition to Gordon, which went into production earlier this year, SDSC operates Trestles, designed to enable modest-scale and gateway researchers to be as computationally productive as possible, and the Triton Resource, a medium-sized data-intensive compute cluster primarily for UC San Diego and UC researchers.

All three computer systems, for example, are integrated into four tiers of specialized data storage, which is crucial for genomics and other researchers who need to sift through massive amounts of data. SDSC's data storage facilities include:

  • Data Oasis, a high-performance Lustre-based parallel file system with four petabytes of storage and a 100 gigabyte-per-second (GB/s) connection for scratch and medium-term storage.

  • Gordon's 300 terabytes of flash-based solid state drive memory. Like Data Oasis, this is used for fast random access and fast sequential access.

  • Project Storage, which provides academic and research partners a network-based storage service offering Common Internet File System (CIFS) and Network File System (NFS) storage to SDSC and UC San Diego systems. With transfer rates up to 1GB/s, Project Storage is an excellent option for interactive access and use as a traditional mounted file system.

  • SDSC Cloud, a multi-platform, fully accessible and scalable disk-based cloud storage system with 5.5 petabytes of raw storage and more than two petabytes of formatted dual copy storage for archiving or sharing. One petabyte equals a quadrillion (1,000 trillion) bytes of information. The SDSC Cloud is believed to be the largest academic-based cloud storage system in the U.S.

SDSC's four tiers of specialized storage are all interconnected for use as needed. "One can access any storage from any of these systems and build workflows that hop from one sys
