JHU, UMD researchers are getting a really big Big Data center

From Baltimore:

A nondescript, 3,700-square-foot building on Johns Hopkins’ Bayview campus will house a new data storage and computing center for university researchers. The $30 million Maryland Advanced Research Computing Center (MARCC) will be available to faculty from JHU and the University of Maryland, College Park.

The web site has a pretty cool time-lapse video of the construction of the computing center. There’s also a bit more detail at the JHU Hub site.
