Bloomington, IN — The Pervasive Technology Institute at Indiana University has been awarded nearly $700,000 from the National Science Foundation to fund the Jetstream cloud computing system’s sixth project year. This brings the total of NSF funding for Jetstream to nearly $14.5M. These funds will allow for a seamless transition from Jetstream to Jetstream2, recently […]

Jetstream and XSEDE resources available for pandemic research

As part of the worldwide effort to understand and contain the COVID-19 pandemic, Indiana University’s Jetstream, which offers cloud-based, on-demand computing and data analysis resources within the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE), is fast-tracking projects that respond to the crisis. “Through the COVID-19 HPC Consortium, Jetstream will provide vital high-performance computing resources. Specifically, priority use of IU’s Jetstream cloud system for analysis of the virus and searches for cures and vaccines. Jetstream offers cloud-based, on-demand computing and data analysis resources, in support of research related to COVID-19.”

Supercomputing the Expansion of Wind Power

Researchers are using TACC supercomputers to map out a path towards growing wind power as an energy source in the United States. “This research is the first detailed study designed to develop scenarios for how wind energy can expand from the current levels of seven percent of U.S. electricity supply to achieve the 20 percent by 2030 goal outlined by the U.S. Department of Energy National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in 2014.”
