PTI is developing the Web-based science gateway, called the ODI Pipeline, Portal and Archive, to help researchers pool resources and analyze, manipulate and store data from the WIYN One Degree Imager. It leverages IU's Data Capacitor and Scholarly Data Archives systems for storage, and XSEDE for computation. Once data are moved to and archived at the IU Data Center, astronomers will no longer need to transfer all the intermediate stages of their data to their home computers. Instead, they'll be able to work in a cloud configuration, downloading only their final results.
The Scientific Applications and Performance Tuning (SciAPT) group within Research Technologies strives to maximize the effective utilization of cyberinfrastructure at Indiana University. Specifically, SciAPT seeks to empower researchers to use high performance computing systems, high performance file systems, and the Scholarly Data Archive at Indiana University to its fullest potential.
