Are you getting the most out of your data? Or, has the necessity of offline storage/archiving made you unable to consider all your data when looking for answers? Then, come to the day-long open house at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center on April 13th for a solution to your data problems. The Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center was established in 1986 to advance the state-of-the-art in high-performance computing, communications and informatics. The center is a joint effort of Carnegie Mellon University, the University of Pittsburgh and Westinghouse Electric Company (and includes the support of federal agencies, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and private industry). It offers university, government and industrial researchers access to some of the most powerful high-performance computing, communications and data-handling systems.

Their event, “Discover12 — Unleashing the Power of Data”, will introduce you to their Data Supercell:

[A] PSC-developed data storage management solution for low cost, high bandwidth, high reliability and high capacity storage. What was once archived is now “near-line” storage, enabling you to make the best decisions based on ALL your available data.

Using our “better than archiving” Data Supercell, you can:

• Keep your data safe and available
• Move your data efficiently
• Reduce maintenance costs
• Preserve data models
• Put your “big data” to work

They will also feature other projects at this open house including: Understanding the Brain, Language Processing, Supermassive Black Holes, Open Education Resources and Development Program for STEM teachers.

You can find out more information on this event here and reserve your space to attend here.
