Among DOE supercomputing facilities, NERSC is at the forefront of data management and storage innovations

100 petabytes. That's how much data is currently stored at the Department of Energy's (DOE) National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC). And it's increasing by 40 percent to 60 percent annually. That's a far cry from NERSC's early days. When NERSC first opened its doors in 1974, files were typically measured in megabytes. In 1976, the centre - then located at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and still known as the National Magnetic Fusion Energy Computer Center (NMFECC) - could store a whopping 19,200 megabytes of data, primarily on on-line disks and nine-track tapes.
