VELaSSCO is a EC funded Project dealing with end-user visualization of Big Data

As the amount of data obtained with state-of-the-art engineering application simulation tools is growing fast, Big Data and high-performance computing (HPC) are converging to face the same technological challenges. It is clear that by 2020, most crucial simulation results such as those from the aeronautic industry or automotive, will not be able to be stored in a single machine or server.

The Vision of VELaSSCo is to provide new visual analysis methods for large-scale simulations serving the petabyte era and preparing the exabyte era.

It does this by adopting Big Data tools and architectures for the engineering and scientific community and by leveraging new ways of in-situ processing for data analytics and hardware accelerated interactive visualization.
