Science Database Services

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 (Experimental)
