NERSCPowering Scientific Discovery Since 1974

Databases

 

NERSC supports the provisioning of databases to hold large scientific datasets, as part of the science gateways effort. Data-centric science often benefits from database solutions to store scientific data or metadata about data stored in more traditional file formats. Our database offereings are targeted toward large data sets and high performance.

Currently we support:

    • MySQL
    • PostgreSQL
    • MongoDB
    • SciDB

If you would like to discuss databases at NERSC please fill out this form and you'll be contacted by NERSC staff.
