The technology is being developed with industry partners, and will be made available to scientific and industrial organizations in the UK.
When brought online, the Square Kilometer Array radio telescope will generate an exabyte of data every day.
Climate researchers in Australia are feeling the pinch of resource constraints.
The world’s largest radio telescope could produce more data than the entirety of the Internet could handle so new variations on old distributed computing models are finding an audience…
