Mr Imran Latif (Brookhaven National Laboratory)


The methods and techniques of scientific research at Brookhaven National Laboratory are increasingly dependent upon the ability to acquire, analyze, and store vast quantities of data. The needs for data processing equipment and supporting infrastructure are anticipated to grow significantly in the next few years, soon exceeding the capacity of existing data center resources, currently located in Building 515. The Core Facility Revitalization – Phase 1 (CFR-1) project anticipates the partial renovation and revitalization of Building 725 (NSLS-I) for use as a new state of the art computing facility which will house HPC equipment for RHIC-ATLAS, NSLS-II, CFN and CSC and also provide expansion space for future science programs. This presentation summarizes the technical discussions held so far and the status of the project.
