EMC Provides Storage Infrastructure To North Carolina State University Libraries As Platinum Member Of Powered By Program

HOPKINTON, Mass., May 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

News Summary:

  • Through the EMC Information Heritage Initiative, EMC will support North Carolina State University's James B. Hunt Jr. Library in providing a technologically sophisticated learning space.
  • EMC is supporting the Hunt Library's goal of offering the University and its partners the computing infrastructure required to enable new ways to investigate data, large-scale visualization and graphic-intensive applications, immersive simulation environments, and interactive, cloud-based computing.
  • EMC is utilizing industry-leading solutions including its Isilon scale-out NAS product family.

EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC) announced today that it is providing storage and computing infrastructure to North Carolina State University Libraries as a founding Platinum member of the university's Powered By program. The James B. Hunt Jr. Library, which opened on North Carolina State University's Centennial Campus in early 2013, sets a new benchmark for technologically sophisticated learning spaces. EMC ® is supporting the Hunt Library's goal of offering the University and its partners the computing infrastructure needed to enable new ways to investigate data, large-scale visualization and graphic-intensive applications, immersive simulation environments, and interactive, cloud-based computing.

EMC is providing storage technologies, including its Isilon scale-out NAS solutions, to power Hunt Library's private cloud, virtual desktop, and virtual server infrastructure. This project is part of the company's longstanding ' EMC Information Heritage Initiative,' which works to protect and preserve the world's information for future generations and make it globally accessible in digital form for research and education purposes. Past EMC Information Heritage Initiative-sponsored endeavors include: supporting the Vatican Apostolic Library ( Rome, Italy) in digitizing its catalogue of historic manuscripts and incunabula; supporting the  JFK Library ( Boston, USA) in the process of digitizing and archiving its entire collection; and supporting the Herzogin Anna Amalia Library (Weimar, Germany), home to a unique collection of Faust first editions.

Early projects that have already capitalized on the library's computing power include:

  • A powerfully realistic simulator to train ROTC midshipmen to operate the bridge of modern naval vessels;
  • 3-D recreation of St. Paul's Cross during John Donne's tenure at the cathedral to demonstrate the impact of 17 th-century sermons as they were actually delivered;
  • Sophisticated student-created video games inspired by the University's acclaimed Digital Games Research Center;
  • Virtual crime scene simulations; and
  • Visualizations that explore the mobility of materials through cell walls.

The Hunt Library serves both as NC State's second main library and as the intellectual and social heart of the university's Centennial Campus. Named the nation's top research park in 2007, Centennial Campus is a nexus of collaboration where students and faculty work with more than sixty corporate and governmental partners to craft the innovations that will shape tomorrow. The Hunt Library contains one of the most powerful sets of visualization technologies at a US public university. In addition, the Hunt Library's computing and storage power is a key resource for the NCSU Libraries' leadership role in numerous leading-edge, multi-institutional projects to curate and make accessible large sets of data.
