The San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of California, San Diego, along with small business partners SD Technology and Chickasaw Nation Industries, have brought together an extensive portfolio of information technology and data services for healthcare and government through the ‘Sherlock’ consortium in an effort to serve federal, state, and local governments as well as universities nationwide.
The ‘Sherlock’ consortium’s portfolio of expertise spans many IT disciplines, including cloud computing, cyber security, data management and mining, application development, HPC, big data, and visualization. These experts have developed and deployed specific services designed to provide a solid and secure foundation for a wide range of initiatives. Today ‘Sherlock’ offers four major products -- Sherlock Analytics, Sherlock Case Management, Sherlock Cloud, and Sherlock Data Lab -- along with an array of services and consulting expertise.
‘Sherlock’s’ resources are physically located within the San Diego Supercomputer Center’s (SDSC) Data Center, and, where needed for redundancy, in a secure data center in Northern California. SDSC’s Data Center is staffed around the clock and protected with controlled access systems, backup power, advanced fire suppression systems, and other safety measures. Sherlock Cloud systems interconnect with a 10Gb/s (gigabits per second) network fabric within the SDSC Data Center, and wide-area networking utilizes more than 100Gb/s of high-bandwidth connections to the Internet and research networks such as Internet2, National Lambda Rail (NLR), and the Corporation for Education Network Initiatives in California (CENIC).
The Sherlock consortium represents a collaboration with UCSD and industry partners Chickasaw Nation Industries (CNI) and SD Technology. These companies bring complementary expertise, years of government contracting experience, and small business capabilities to the consortium, enabling operational and contracting flexibility.
