The system architecture is made up of multiple scalable units. The list below describes the total aggregate components of the system and its individual scalable units.

The new center more than doubles the computing capacity available at Goddard one year ago and expands other services to support NASA’s growing climate data needs. Enhanced NCCS capabilities include:
Climate modeling groups all across the world are racing to add their contributions to the CMIP5 archive of coupled model simulations. This coordinated project, proposed, conceived and specified by the climate modeling community itself, will be an important resource for analysts and for the IPCC AR5 report (due in 2013), and beyond.
