PRACE partner Jülich joins XSEDE

21 Oct 2011 Juelich - The Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC) partners in the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) that started in July 2011 and receives 121 million USD of funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) in the US.

XSEDE is a partnership of 17 organisations to provide scientists in the US from all disciplines with easy access to most advanced digital resources. XSEDE will be developed under the leadership of the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

The Research Centre Jülich has been selected as the only non-US partner. It will contribute the UNICORE software that is developed and supported as Open Source software under the direction of Jülich's JSC. UNICORE allows seamless access to distributed resources via the Internet. It is deployed and proven in PRACE, the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe, to access systems in the European HPC ecosystem.
