Submitted by stuart_rankin on Mon, 07/22/2019 - 11:59

CSD3 is a multi-institution service underpinned by an innovative, petascale, data-centric HPC platform, designed specifically to drive data-intensive simulation and high-performance data analysis. The service constitutes a major addition to the UK national e-infrastructure, which will enable large scale simulation and next generation data analytics capability for researchers across a broad range of disciplines. The CSD3 platform has been co-designed with DELL EMC, Intel and NVIDIA. A non-exhaustive list of research areas expected to particularly benefit from CSD3 includes: Turbulence simulations (relevant to the aeronautical industry). Combustion simulations (relevant to the automotive industry). Analysis of large data sets from the Internet of Things (relevant to smart cities research). Materials modelling research. Medical applications, including: Analysis of large medical image data sets. Population-scale gene variant analysis. Real-time medical analytics for use in hospital decision support systems.
