JASMIN is a globally-unique data analysis facility. It provides storage and compute facilities to enable data-intensive environmental science.
Over 1500 users are currently supported exploring topics ranging from climate change and oceanography to air pollution, earthquake deformation and analysis of wildlife populations.
Centred more around storage and data analysis than a “traditional” supercomputer, JASMIN provides flexibility for a wide range of data-intensive analysis workflows.
Tens of petabytes of storage are combined with several types of compute resource: managed interactive and batch compute for building and executing large workflows, and a “community cloud” offering projects and communities a set of service components with which to build and manage their own computing needs. All with high-performance access to massive data resources, including the curated archives of the Centre for Environmental Data Analysis (CEDA).
Architected jointly between STFC’s Scientific Computing Department and CEDA within RAL Space, it is operated and supported by a small but innovative team with expertise in systems administration, computer science, research software engineering and environmental informatics.
