TeraLab, A Secure Big Data Platform: Description And Use Cases
The TeraLab Big Data platform will be opened in 2014. Its architecture will allow memory-intensive and/or massively parallel treatments on large data sets, including highly confidential data. A varied collection of software tools and a catalog of useful data sets will be installed on the platform. TeraLab will support the development of a wide range of research and industrial projects, and contribute to the emergence of a data science community. This paper gives a rapid overview of the TeraLab platform architecture, and presents some examples of use cases that it is designed to support.
