Cloud computing takes your science to the next level.
The One Degree Imager is helping to change astronomy by giving researchers a wide field of view and exceptional image resolution. To handle the huge amounts of data generated by these images, Indiana University IT experts have designed and developed the One Degree Imager Pipeline, Portal, and Archive (ODI-PPA) Science Gateway.
Traditionally, images go from telescope to flash drive to laptop, where researchers handle computation locally. Using IU's advanced network and computing infrastructure, ODI-PPA automates most of the process -- and adds a comprehensive web portal that lets astronomers view, search, analyze, monitor, and download data.
