Scientific analysis often includes huge amounts of data. For example, the human genome contains more than 3,000 million base-pairs. To map all the DNA sequences and create the genome simulation requires not only massive computing power, but also high data throughput and storage. In particle physics, a microscopic description of a system typically contains particles in the order of 1023 which requires massive resources to analyze. Scientific research has become more and more sophisticated and requires corresponding computing power with data throughput to match in order to make the breakthroughs we need in our quest for knowledge.
