  • Description: BigStorage is a European Training Network (ETN) whose main goal is to train future data scientists. It aims at enabling them and us to apply holistic and interdisciplinary approaches to take advantage of a data-overwhelmed world. This world requires HPC and Cloud infrastructures with a redefinition of storage architectures underpinning them — focusing on meeting highly ambitious performance and energy usage objectives. The KerData team will be hosting 2 Early Stage Researchers in this framework.
