Large scale scientific datasets are generally modeled as k-dimensional arrays, since this model is amenable to the form of analyses and visualization of the scientific phenomenon often investigated. In recent years, organizations have adopted the use of On-Line Analytical Processing (OLAP), methods and statistical analyses to make strategic business decisions using enterprise data that are modeled as multi-dimensional arrays as well. In both of these domains, the datasets have the propensity to gradually grow, reaching orders of terabytes.
