Accelerated Box of Flash: Powerful computation storage for big data projects

Data is a vital part of solving complicated scientific questions, in endeavors ranging from genomics, to climatology, to the analysis of nuclear reactions.  However, an abundance of data is often only as good as the ability to efficiently store, access and manipulate that data.  To facilitate discovery with big data problems, Los Alamos researchers, in collaboration with industry partners, have developed an open storage system acceleration architecture for scientific data analysis, which can deliver 10 to 30 times the performance of current systems
