CANFAR: Integrating Cyberinfrastructure for Astronomy

While at the SPIE Meeting in San Diego, CA this week, I learned all about a fascinating project from  a talk given by my colleague Severin Gaudet (of the Canadian Astronomy Data Centre, CADC). The project is called CANFAR, the Canadian Advanced Network for Astronomical Research.  This project aims to meet the computing needs of astronomers in this age of data intensive science. It aims to unite compute resources across Canada (including cloud and grid resoures)  into a distributed environment. This environment serves data to astronomers and offers the infrastructure to process and integrate them.  Learn more from this talk by David Schade.
