Data and Computing Architecture Study
NASA’s Science Mission Directorate (SMD) Data and Computing Architecture study will investigate how a coordinated cloud-High End Computing (HEC) infrastructure can meet the data and computing needs of SMD, enable efficiencies, and support SMD’s transition to Open-Source Science.
The goals of this study are to:
- Identify scientific data and computing capabilities and architectures that enable Open Science, improve access to advanced computing and analytic services, allow open scientific collaboration, manage cybersecurity risks, and balance cost.
- Identify opportunities that will ensure long-term evolution and sustainability of an SMD-wide data and computing infrastructure to enable Open-Source Science.
The Data and Computing Architecture Study will solicit input from a broad and diverse set of NASA teams, industry partners, Open Science experts, and stakeholders across a spectrum of the science mission, research and data and computing systems community. The study will be conducted in an open manner and will include public workshops and broad outreach efforts.
