The Edinburgh Data-Intensive Machine (EDIM1) is the product of a joint collaboration between the data-intensive group at the School of Informatics and EPCC. EDIM1 is an experimental system, offering an alternative architecture for data-intensive computation and providing a platform for evaluating tools for data-intensive research; a 120 node cluster of ‘data-bricks’ with high storage yet modest computational capacity. This document gives some background into the context in which EDIM1 was designed and constructed, as well as providing an overview of its use so far and future plans.
