In ScienceNode a new initiative called Jetstream is described. It is set up by the University of Indiana. It includes HPC resources from Indiana and other institutes and is aimed at researchers in the long-tail of science: the researchers that do not use HPC much yet. Jetstream will run much like a traditional cloud facility, geographically distributed across the US and available 24/7/365. Web-based accessibility means researchers who have graduated to the need for supercomputing but lack technical sophistication find an easy route to harness the massive compute power scientific discovery now demands. Craig Stewart is the principal investigator of the Jetstream project. Read further...
