Scientists, engineers, social scientists, and humanists around the world—many of them at colleges and universities—use advanced digital resources and services every day. Things like supercomputers, collections of data, and new tools are critical to the success of those researchers, who use them to make our lives healthier, safer, and better.
XSEDE integrates these resources and services, makes them easier to use, and helps more people use them.
XSEDE supports 16 supercomputers and high-end visualization and data analysis resources across the country. More details on these resources are available on the Resources area
Digital services, meanwhile, provide users with seamless integration to NSF's high-performance computing and data resources. XSEDE's integrated, comprehensive suite of advanced digital services will federate with other high-end facilities and with campus-based resources, serving as the foundation for a national cyberinfrastructure ecosystem. Common authentication and trust mechanisms, global namespace and filesystems, remote job submission and monitoring, and file transfer services are examples of XSEDE's advanced digital services. XSEDE's standards-based architecture allows open development for future digital services and enhancements.
