In this video from the DDN User Group at SC17, Jake Carroll from The Queensland Brain Institute, The University of Queensland, Australia presents: MeDiCI: How to Withstand a Research Data Tsunami.

The University of Queensland (UQ) faced a common problem: several departments across campus existed in silos as they performed diverse types of research, each of which generated exponential amounts of data. David Abramson, director of UQ’s Research Computing Centre and professor of computer science, was tasked with bringing all of the data from those departments under one central storage system. Watch “Caches All the Way Down: Infrastructure for Data Intensive Science” below to see how UQ solved its problem using DDN’s Storage Fusion Architecture® and GRIDScaler® technologies.
