Nautilus, a high-performance computer that will be used for visualizing and analyzing large datasets at the Remote Data Analysis and Visualization Center (RDAV) at the University of Tennessee, was launched Monday (Sept. 20). RDAV and Nautilus will provide researchers with the ability to work with massive amounts of data.

"Our objective is to increase the ability of biologists to interpret and analyze complex, multivariate data to address fundamental and applied questions in the life sciences," says Tennessee professor Louis Gross.

"Nautilus, and the way it is being integrated into the computational ecosystem at [the National Institute for Computational Sciences], looks like a very promising avenue for us to increase the amount of scientific insight we obtain from simulations on Kraken," says Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Bronson Messer. Nautilus also will be used to process data in other researcher areas, including weather and climate modeling.
