Big data e-infrastructures for eScience are emerging. Efforts are under way in standardisation and interoperability. 

  • RDA Research Data Alliance is a standardisation group.
  • EUDat is a large scale EC project providing some first implementations of an e-Infrastructures Big Data platform.


National Strategic Computing Initiative Strategic Plan.pdf

The National Strategic Computing Initiative (NSCI) is a whole-of-Nation effort to sustain and enhance U.S. leadership in high-performance computing (HPC). The NSCI seeks to accomplish five strategic objectives in a government collaboration with industry and academia: (1) accelerate the successful deployment and application of capable exascale computing; (2) ensure that new technologies support coherence in data analytics as well as simulation and modeling; (3) explore and accelerate new paths for future computing architectures and technologies, including digital computing and alternative computing paradigms; (4) holistically expand capabilities and capacity of a robust and enduring HPC ecosystem; and (5) establish an enduring public-private collaboration to ensure shared benefit across government, academia, and industry.
