Arizona Technology and Innovation: Jetstream Cyber-Platform
Dec. 3, 2014
Scientists and engineers can now store, share and analyze data through Jetstream, the first all-science cyber-computing platform. It’s a $6.5 million project funded by the National Science Foundation. The iPlant Collaborative based at the University of Arizona’s BIO5 Institute will play an important role in development and operation of Jetstream. Nirav Merchant, co-principal investigator of the iPlant Collaborative and director of Bio Computing at Arizona Research Laboratories, and Edwin Skidmore, assistant director of infrastructure for the iPlant Collaborative and Head of “Atmosphere,” the U Of A’s cloud computing platform, will discuss Jetstream.
