Putting Advanced Computing Power Within Reach

Campus Technology: Indiana University's Pervasive Technology Institute is leading an NSF grant (currently valued at more than $13 million) to create, implement and operate Jetstream, a user-friendly cloud environment designed to give more researchers and students at higher education institutions access to high-end computing resources on demand, from their tablets, laptops or desktop computers.

This effort by the IU Jetstream team and partnering institutions — including the Texas Advanced Computing Center, the University of Chicago, Johns Hopkins University, the University of Arizona, the University of Texas-San Antonio, and Cornell University — puts advanced computing power within reach of research, science and education programs that previously did not have access to comparable resources.
