The National Science Foundation (NSF) announced funding for two cloud testbeds, named “Chameleon” and “CloudLab.” A total award of $20 million to be split evenly between the projects will enable the academic research community to create and experiment with novel cloud architectures and potentially transformative applications. Along with developing next-generation cloud systems, the programs emphasize the Read more…
Before we connect the dots on national smart power grid strategy, we need to be able to ensure its safety from malevolent cyber attacks. A new NSF-funded endeavor aims to do just that…
University researchers look for more effective ways of extracting value from an ever-growing deluge of data.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) describes its support for cloud computing research in a 21-page report, submitted to Congress last week.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) and Microsoft have selected thirteen cloud computing projects for monetary and infrastructure funding. From research focused on energy, sustainability, genomics, medicine and the IT systems themselves, these undertakings find innovative ways to maximize valuable data for the good of all.<br />
The MATLAB on the TeraGrid initiative, deployed last year at SC09, is still going strong.
The National Science Foundation has awarded funding to four projects as part of the Future Internet Architecture program; and the 3PAR bidding war is won by HP. We recap those stories and more in our weekly wrapup.
At this year’s TeraGrid conference, Bob Wilhelmson, recently retired chief science officer of the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) and former applications lead for the Blue Waters project, delivered a keynote address in which he discussed the Blue Waters architecture and shared several planned projects for the new supercomputer. This is our fourth in a series covering the TeraGrid conference.
There is no such thing as an NSF (Supercomputer) Center and there never has been. There should be. What there are, in the words of Ed Hayes, then comptroller of NSF, are “NSF ASSISTED Supercomputer Centers.” This is a double edged sword.
In a position paper for community input at NSF’s Future of High Performance Computing Workshop in early December, Calit2 Director Larry Smarr reviewed the successes, failures and continuing challenges of the NSF supercomputing program that he helped create.
