Big Data Center

Using Data Innovatively and Efficiently

Fraunhofer IMW operates a Big Data Center, which represents the technical infrastructure for the research work of the Leipzig scientists. It consists of over 220 processor cores and offers around 450 terabytes of storage capacity. It thus enables analyses of large data volumes, simulations, real-time forecasts and visualizations in order to develop innovative solutions for customers and research partners.

As a thank you for the successful cooperation, the institute management awards sponsorships for the individual processor cores to supporters of Fraunhofer IMW.
