Superhighway for data-intensive science

To accelerate discoveries in data-intensive fields, such as particle physics, astronomy, and biomedical sciences, researchers require high-performance network connections to reliably transfer large datasets. The Pacific Research Platform (PRP) creates a high-speed “freeway system” that “reduces the time for transferring and analyzing data from weeks to days to minutes,” according to Camille Crittenden, deputy director of CITRIS and the Banatao Institute and co-principal investigator for the PRP project.
