On top of the powerful hardware, the Lab offers various state-of-the-art software systems for processing, transforming, analyzing, storing, and machine learning data. This off-the-shelf software includes runtime environments for major programming languages, frameworks for machine learning and distributed computing, and selected proprietary analysis software and databases.
The Lab will serve as a repository for research and industry project data that will be processed and analyzed in the Lab.
Upon completing the primary data center building at HPI Campus II, the Data Lab and its hardware will consolidate into a "Data Center" with other Labs at the Institute. The entire building will use the HPI Data Lab's waste heat as a supply heat in the future.
