AI Seminar: S3DF: The SLAC Shared Science Data Facility
SLAC’s groundbreaking research initiatives present some formidable computing challenges. SLAC needs a strategy for delivering data analytics at an unprecedented scale. Starting off with data acquisition and detector controls that can leverage ML at the edge for real-time calibration. Processing on modern HPC clusters before publishing results. The entire data pipeline relies on scalable storage systems, high-speed networking and instant access to compute resources. S3DF is our strategy for providing these capabilities while building core computing competencies at the lab.
