It is funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and the UK Space Agency (UKSA) and delivered by the Science and Technology Facilities Council.
A bustling hub of scientific collaboration,
JASMIN has nearly 150 NERC-related science projects using its group
workspaces and the CEDA archive. These workspaces bring together researchers
from across the domains of data-intensive environmental science.
Around 1000 virtual machines and 5000 cores of computing power are woven
together with a fast internal network; which efficiently moves petabytes of data
around, into, and out of JASMIN every month. Today, JASMIN’s storage capacity
has tripled to over 16 petabytes - as a comparison, 1 petabyte of average length
songs would equate to approximately 2000 years of continuous play!
