To quote from a document describing Indiana University's cyberinfrastructure:
"The cyberinfrastructure at Indiana University is among the best at any university in the world. Its supercomputers, data storage systems, visualization environments, and access to high performance research networks are intended to help you, the researcher, achieve breakthroughs in your scholarship by making possible new calculations, analyses, and visualizations of massive amounts of data."
These resources are freely available to IU students, staff and faculty and our facility makes extensive use of them as an integral part of its operation.
At present, the vast majority of these resources are intended to be used with images acquired using the JEOL JEM 3200FS and FEI Teneo VolumeScope. However, we hope to include images from the JEOL JEM 1010 and the JEOL JEM 1400plus into our computational framework in the future.
The 3200FS and Teneo save images and other data to the WAN area of the IU Data Capacitor, a large capacity (~340 terabyte) Lustre filesystem providing high-speed and high-bandwith communication for all the IU campuses and for XSEDE users. Every few days, all the newly recorded data are backed up to the Scholarly Data Archive (SDA), a very large (~15 petabyte) redundant storage system available to IU faculty, staff and graduate students.
The Data Capacitor is also mounted on the IU supercomputing systems Karst, Carbonate and Big Red 2. All users of the 3200FS and the Teneo will need to obtain an account on Karst in order to access data collected using the 3200FS.
