XSEDE Support Available through CHPC

Posted: August 23, 2013

XSEDE (xsede.org) is a national computing resource established by the NSF available to researchers performing significant computational research across the United States. XSEDE comprises roughly a dozen dedicated resources at various affiliate institutions. The majority of these resources are built with cutting edge technology, or comprise clusters with significantly greater numbers of cores than the CHPC currently offers. Many XSEDE resources also offer storage services with fast I/O for researchers who have large datasets or may want to host databases with significant query loads.

The University of Utah Campus Champion is Julia Harrison. She and other members of the CHPC staff can assist you with access, allocations and usage of XSEDE resources. A little about the XSEDE service at CHPC is available on the CHPC Wiki

Two events you may be interested in if your are new to XSEDE or interested in using XSEDE resources:
