Researchers whose cyberinfrastructure needs are more advanced than what is available at UD should investigate other resources such as Advanced Cyberinfrastructure Coordination Ecosystem: Services & Support (ACCESS) with assistance available through UD’s campus champions.
What is ACCESS?
Following its highly successful Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) project, the National Science Foundation (NSF) is excited to introduce new advances in innovative cyberinfrastructure with the ACCESS: Advanced Cyberinfrastructure Coordination Ecosystem: Services & Support program.
Did you know that ACCESS offers much more than access to supercomputers?
In addition to connecting researchers with computational resources, ACCESS provides a variety of documentation, direct support for researchers for short-term support partnerships MATCHPlus and long-term embedded specialists MATCHPremier, opportunities to engage in the community through affinity-groups and CSSN: Computational Science and Support Network program, and much more.
Whether you’re looking for advanced computational resources – and outstanding cyberinfrastructure – to take your research to the next level, to explore a career in advanced CI or just to experience the amazing scientific discoveries enabled by supercomputers, then visit ACCESS to learn more.
UD’s Campus Champions
University of Delaware is a member of the Campus Champions program, one of several important established communities of practice that the ACCESS Support team will strive to partner with to deliver their services. The ACCESS Support team will work with the Champions Leadership Team to determine how best to navigate their role in the CSSN: Computational Science and Support Network. UD’s Campus Champions are Anita Schwartz and Michael Kyle along with UD’s Student Campus Champion, Parinaz Barakhshan, can provide you with information about ACESSS services. We are here to help expedite technical problem-resolution by involving ACCESS specialist staff and other Campus Champions.
The ACESSS program provides a broad portfolio of resources operated by members of the ACCESS Resource Provider Forum. These resources include multi-core and many-core high-performance computing (HPC) systems, distributed high-throughput computing (HTC) environments, visualization and data analysis systems, large-memory systems, data storage, and cloud systems. Some resources provide unique services for Science Gateways. Some of these resources are made available to the user community through the ACCESS-managed allocations process. The ACCESS Resource Provider Forum consists of RPs that are autonomous entities that agree to coordinate with ACCESS and each other to varying degrees. The ACCESS Resource Provider Forum may also include other non-service provider organizations.
ACCESS Home is a web interface for connecting to all ACCESS services: Support, Operations and Metrics all in a single place.
