Infinite Possibilities

High Performance Storage

The research group High-Performance Storage improves the capabilities of storage landscapes applying smart concepts. We speak big data analytics and high-performance computing and apply our knowledge to meet the needs of environmental modeling.

Further information about our mission.

The virtual research group connects members from the Computer Science Department of the University of Reading, the DKRZ, and the Scientific Computing Group of the University of Hamburg; it tightly collaborates with the research group Advanced Computing for Environmental Science (ACES).
