Description: The growing ubiquity, volume, and velocity of data is having a transformative impact on many sectors of modern society including, energy, science, and defense. DOE operates a broad assortment of scientific facilities such as light sources, observatories, and supercomputing facilities that generate vast amounts of data. Over the years DOE has invested in the development of tools, services, visualization systems, data analytic technologies, and network capabilities to manage the massive science data sets being generated by these facilities. These capabilities, originally developed to address DOEs data-intensive science, are now available to be adopted and extended to solve challenging Big Data problems. Grant applications are sought to engage and expose the small business communities working to; a) leverage DOEs vast portfolio of scientific data management technologies to provide production quality Big Data tools and services, and b) develop new innovative technologies to address related Big Data management challenges. These include but are not limited to 1) production quality Big Data management tools, value-added services, cloud-based services, and turnkeys solutions; and 2) Big Data infrastructure sub-systems such as storage systems technologies, data movement services and technologies, data center-Science DMZ networking technologies, and data security systems; and 3) and scalable data analysis and visualization tools and services for knowledge discovery and data mining.
