Computational Sciences Facility

The 73,000 sf Computational Sciences Facility houses researchers involved in developing solutions for the growing challenge of data overload — common to the scientific and national security communities. For example, a single scientific experiment can produce a terabyte of data — too much for a person to interpret. Intelligence analysts face similar challenges collecting and processing real-time data streams — from video to audio to text — they must analyze to better predict and detect threats. PNNL researchers are leaders in the development of data-intensive computing solutions — a way to capture, manage, analyze and help users understand massive amounts of data using innovative computing hardware and software technologies. The CSF includes 10,000 square feet of raised floor space to accommodate data-intensive and high-performance computing hardware and data storage.
