This is Big Data Analytics to the extreme. With DOME we will embark on one of the most dataintensive science projects ever planned, which will eventually have much broader applications beyond radio astronomy research"

"The ability to conduct data analysis on a large scale, leveraging the power of ‘big data,’ has become increasingly essential to research and development. Just as important is the valuable new resource that we are creating for industry. The Institute will collaborate with businesses that need high-performance computing capabilities but can’t justify the cost of building their own system."
