Apply by October 15 for time on Jetstream!

Jetstream, the new XSEDE shared cloud resource, is slated to be online and available for use on January 22, 2016.

You can now apply for allocations for use of Jetstream here:https://www.xsede.org/allocations.

October 15 is the deadline for January XSEDE research allocations. Please reach out to researchers on your campuses to let them know about Jetstream's availability and how to apply for (and benefit from) research allocations.  

Designed for on-demand access to interactive computing and data analysis resources, Jetstream will be a user-friendly cloud computing environment for researchers and research students. Users can select from a library of virtual machines for their research; software developers and researchers will be able to create customized virtual machines or "private computing systems."

Jetstream will be attractive to those who have not been users of traditional HPC systems, including researchers in biology, atmospheric science, observational astronomy, and the social sciences. Jetstream advanced computational capabilities focus on the following areas:

  • Ease-of-use, broad accessibility (reducing the barriers to research on HPC environments)
  • Reproducibility via storage and publication on IU Scholarworks (using digital object identifiers)
  • Support for persistent gateways (including gateways for iPlant and Galaxy, and your gateway too)
  • Interactive VM-based work (e.g., scientific application development and environment development)

Jetstream is being developed by a large team of hardware and software experts, led by the Indiana University Pervasive Technology Institute, the Texas Advanced Computing Center, and the University of Arizona.
