Enabling Earth Science: The Facilities and People of the NCCSThe NCCS's mass data storage system allows scientists to store and manage the vast amounts of data generated by these computations, and its high-speed network connections allow the data to be accessed quickly from the NCCS archives. Some NCCS users perform studies that are directly related to their ability to run computationally expensive and data-intensive simulations. Because the number and type of questions scientists research often are limited by computing power, the NCCS continually pursues the latest technologies in computing, mass storage, and networking technologies. Just as important as the processors, tapes, and routers of the NCCS are the personnel who administer this hardware, create and manage accounts, maintain security, and assist the scientists, often working one on one with them.
