November 29, 2012
Nautilus, the supercomputer at the heart of the University of Tennessee's Remote Data Analysis and Visualization (RDAV) Center, has recently been upgraded to allow more researchers access to high-performance computing for data analysis. Funded by the National Science Foundation, Nautilus is housed on the campus of the Oak Ridge National Laboratory and is used by researchers all over the United States for visualizing and analyzing data sets in ways that are not possible on smaller systems.
