San Diego Supercomputer Center and Singapore Advanced Research and Education Network commit to improving data access for researchers in Asia
The San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of California San Diego (USA) and the Singapore Advanced Research and Education Network (SingAREN) have announced a partnership aimed at improving data access for researchers in Asia. The partnership will leverage SDSC’s expertise in managing large-scale data repositories and SingAREN’s network infrastructure to create a data cache server to be hosted at the SingAREN Open Exchange. The cache server – described as a data block for storing information for easy re-access – will enable researchers across Asia to have faster and more efficient access to data, in particular geospatial, genomic, and climate data.
Expected to be operational by the end of 2023, the data cache is part of a broader effort to promote collaboration and data sharing across the global research community.
