Bridges Supercomputer Enters Production
NSF Deems PSC’s HPC+Big Data Computational Resource Operational
Aug. 31, 2016
The Bridges system at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC) entered production operations last month, in support of advances in science, research, engineering, and education. Following approval by the National Science Foundation (NSF), this status change marks the transition to completing integration with other Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) compute resources, which will streamline use for the approximately 400 research projects that are already using Bridges.
XSEDE 2.0 earns $110M NSF award to expand nation’s cyberinfrastructure ecosystem
Five-year award rewards national collaboration’s success in supporting advanced computational and data-enabled research and developing the Nation's digital workforce
