The computing group provides infrastructure and resources to support the scientific activities of SCDA and our external collaborators. The data-sets associated with SCDA projects have several attributes in common that provide significant computing challenges – they are large, growing and generated at multiple institutions. Analysis of these data-sets often requires the development or deployment of new technologies. In addition to the development of new algorithmic approaches, our mission includes storage and data handling system support, support for access to processing resources both internal to SCDA and to distributed resources, and access to specialized infrastructure. Working closely with the software group we aim to develop and deploy a broad range of solutions necessary to meet the diverse demands of SCDA’s research mission.
