A bustling hub of scientific collaboration,
JASMIN has more than 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
stands at around 45 petabytes. To give an idea of scale, that's equivalent to more than 8 million DVDs and just one petabyte of average length
songs would equate to approximately 2000 years of continuous play!
