Funding from the National Science Foundation and the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI) will support parallel programming enabler Parsl as it enters a new phase of sustainability, community, and outreach.

As the scale of scientific research grows larger, so too do the barriers. Data-intensive and computation-heavy work across all fields can benefit from parallel computing and high-performance resources, but not everyone knows how to scale up from a laptop to a supercomputer.

When any successful project attracts a large community, there will be growing pains. Since its launch in 2015, the experimental cloud computing testbed Chameleon has realized its vision of becoming a shared scientific instrument for computer science research and education. The project, led by Argonne Senior Scientist and UChicago CASE Affiliate Kate Keahey, has supported over 800 projects and 6,000 users from around the world and developed several new applications and deployments.

In a wide-ranging discussion on data security this month at the Bio-IT World Conference and Expo, panelists dug into how the data we have can be better positioned to inform research in the future—and what that means for both patients and researchers.

Scientific experimentation frequently generates enormous quantities of data. And, just as frequently, this data cannot be handled at the point where it is created and has to be moved to either large supercomputing clusters or the cloud. This process of moving data requires high-tech software packages that can transport large quantities of information seamlessly, reliably and quickly, all over the world.

The Arecibo Observatory, UCF, TACC, the University of Puerto Rico, EPOC, Globus, CICoE Pilot partner to move telescope data to Ranch system

Millions of people have seen footage of the famed Arecibo radio telescope's collapse in December 2020. What they would not have seen from those videos was Arecibo's data center, located outside the danger zone. It stores the ‘golden copy' of the telescope's data — the original tapes, hard drives, and disk drives of sky scans since the 1960s.
