With 250-350 gigabytes of storage, the average computer is fairly capable of solving basic problems. But when those numbers jump up to the 48,000 gigabytes of storage found on the supercomputer at Southern Illinois University Carbondale, a researcher can quickly run complex calculations on topics such as genetic sequencing and atmospheric science. Or create a geospatial model to support the global food economy.
