Big Data

For meeting 21st century’s big data challenge by advancing data science research, ACER will soon be providing UIC researchers access to hybrid HPC/Big-Data resource called SABER, A Shared Analytics and Big Data Enterprise Resource. Funded by a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant, SABER will be UIC’s first fee-for-service grant where researchers can either buy service time or buy dedicated nodes for exclusive usage. With over petabyte storage, SABER will allow researchers to run computation and analysis on massive datasets from heterogeneous sources.
