Identify economical technology alternatives for computational effectiveness and efficiency
NOAA requires technology solutions, in addition to mission-focused R&D, to enable its science enterprise, particularly for its computationally and communications intensive components, such as numerical predictions. An important element of this objective is establishing a robust Operations-to-Research (O2R) high-performance computing environment.
- Evaluate fine-grained computing technologies within NOAA's IT architecture as a computing resource for running NOAA models R
- Prototype, test, and assess cloud-computing techniques, demonstrating shipboard cloud-computing R
