Big Data Center at Leipzig Fraunhofer Center

The worldwide volume of data doubles every two years. The currently available storage capacities will therefore be completely exhausted by 2020. Big Data offers solutions for this. The realization of a Big Data Center at the institute facilitates the large-scale storage and evaluation of digital data. This makes data analyses, simulations, real-time forecasts or visualizations a key element of innovative solutions for clients and research partners.
