The National Science Foundation’s Office of Cyberinfrastructure has issued a new HPC solicitation for sustained petascale supercomputers. Proposals are due March 7, 2011.

With this solicitation, the NSF requests proposals from organizations willing to serve as HPC Resource Providers within Extreme Digital (XD), the successor to TeraGrid, and who propose to acquire and deploy new, innovative petascale HPC systems and services. Competitive HPC systems will: expand the range of data intensive computationally-challenging science and engineering applications that can be tackled with XD HPC services and efficiently provide a high degree of stability and usability by January, 2013.
