Two ASCR Data Technologies Win R&D 100 Award
Widely recognized as a mark of excellence, the R&D 100 Awards are the only industry-wide competition rewarding the practical applications of science. Among the 2013 winners of this prestigious award are two ASCR developed technologies: ADIOS and OSCARS. OSCARS, the On-demand Secure Circuits and Reservation System, is a software service that creates dedicated bandwidth channels for scientists who need to move massive, time-critical data sets around the world - the development of which was led by the Department of Energy's ESnet (Energy Sciences Network). ADIOS is the Adaptable I/O System for Big Data, developed by a team of researchers from Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), Georgia Tech, and Rutgers University and supported by ASCR through both Computer Science and SciDAC. ADIOS is an I/O middleware package that has shown great promise helping codes scale up with improved performance.
