XSEDE

Researchers whose cyberinfrastructure needs exceed what is available at UD should investigate other resources such as Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) with assistance available through UD’s XSEDE campus champion. 

What is XSEDE?

Did you know that XSEDE offers much more than access to supercomputers?

In addition to connecting researchers with computational resources, XSEDE provides a variety of trainings, chances to collaborate with computational science and cyberinfrastructure experts, tools for data analysis and visualization, opportunities for students, and much more.

In fact, since 2011, XSEDE has supported over $2 billion dollars worth of research awards from agencies like the National Science Foundation which have enabled competitive research across the nation.

Together, the XSEDE team is working to bring the best of XSEDE to every user, so that you can Discover More. Check out XSEDE’s new video to explore how.

XSEDE, the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment, helps the nation’s most creative minds discover breakthroughs and solutions for some of the world’s greatest scientific challenges. Through free, customized access to the National Science Foundation’s advanced digital resources, expert consulting, training and mentorship opportunities, XSEDE enables you to Discover More.

UD’s Campus Champion

UD’s Information Technologies is an institutional member of the Campus Champions program, which is part of XSEDE’s Education and Outreach activity. UD’s Campus Champion, Anita Schwartz, along with UD’s Student Campus Champion, Parinaz Barakhshan, can provide you with information about XSEDE’s resources, quick access to XSEDE service allocations and quick startup training for new allocations.  We are here to help expedite technical problem-resolution by involving XSEDE’s specialist staff and other Campus Champions.

Available Systems

The XSEDE ecosystem encompasses a broad portfolio of resources operated by members of the XSEDE Service 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 a central XSEDE-managed allocations process, while many other resources operated by Forum members are linked to other parts of the ecosystem.

User Portal

The XSEDE User Portal is a web interface for making XSEDE account management easier, for getting information about XSEDE resources, and for accessing many XSEDE services in a single place.
