Computational science is the process of modeling and simulating phenomenon with the ultimate aim of understanding complex systems. As computer platforms increase in capacity and simulations increase in capability, the data produced by computational science research projects grows ever larger and more complex. In response, resource centers, like the National Energy Research Scientific Computing center, provide unique capabilities and computing capacity. With the growth in the size and complexity

Keeping up with rapidly evolving infrastructure can easily become a full-time job that detracts from a researcher's core mission -scientific research.
