Since I posted that I was starting the new job at the Center for Comprehensive Informatics, I've gotten a lot of questions centered around just what the hell is that.

The all knowing oracle that is Wikipedia gives too much information such that you are still confused after reading it. So I'm going to distill it down to something that makes sense.

"Informatics encompasses the study of systems that represent, process, and communicate information"

One of the current projects we are working on is the "In Silico" project. In Silico means performed on computer or via computer simulation.Our particular project is creating a work flow of hardware, software, middleware, wetware and such to facilitate the analysis of brain tumor data from the physical specimens that are taken from patients all the way to the point where doctor's can be aided with their analysis with expert systems to help categorize the tumors and provide quicker diagnosis. This will allow remote analysis of these specimens from anywhere in the world. As long as you have a data connection of some sort.

Pretty cool.

Right now I'm setting up critical infrastructure such as backups, large scale data storage (i.e. 60TB to start with plans for a 1 Petabyte storage environment within the year), small scale experimental cluster (64 cores), large scale computational cluster (1024 cores or more), and a Virtualization Farm that can support a few hundred Virtual Machines.

as you can imagine, it keeps me quite busy.
