SciServer is a revolutionary new approach to doing science by bringing the analysis to the data. SciServer consists of integrated Tools that work together to create a full-featured system.

About SciServer

SciServer is a five-year project to develop online tools to enable researchers to cope with scientific big data. SciServer is a fully integrated cyberinfrastructure system encompassing related tools and services. SciServer enables a new approach that will allow researchers to work with Terabytes or Petabytes of scientific data, without needing to download any large datasets.

This SciServer approach offers tremendous advantages to scientists:

  • By offering Big Data search and analysis capabilities online…

    SciServer will make it easy to compare datasets and discover new and surprising connections between them.

  • By offering worldwide access to large simulation datasets…

    along with innovative new processing techniques, SciServer will open up computational science resources to scientists everywhere.

  • By providing a cloud-based scientific data storage system…

    that automatically interoperates between flat files and databases through a drag-and-drop interface, SciServer allows scientists to synthesize disparate datasets and take full advantage of their contents.

  • By adapting existing, working tools…

    SciServer builds on success, extending a system that has been functional and user-driven since its inception.

  • By developing new Citizen Science Projects…

    SciServer adds extensibility to worldwide distributed data, such as our Soil Ecology project which uses SciServer to gather worldwide distributed data across a range of climatic conditions.

  • By adding an extensive set of collaborative features…

    SciServer allows individuals to correlate remote sensor measurements of weather and other datasets from external worldwide providers
