Data Visualization in Virtual Spaces and High Dimensions
CT and Imaging Tools for Windows HPC Clusters and Azure Cloud
A key goal of our systems is to provide our “end users”—researchers—with easy access to the tools, computational resources, and data via familiar interfaces and client applications without the need for specialized HPC expertise. We have recently explored the adaptation of our CT-reconstruction code to the Windows Azure cloud platform, for which we have constructed a working “proof-of-concept” system. However, at this stage, several challenges remain to be met in order to make it a truly viable alternative to our HPC cluster solution.
