Scientists, engineers, and other U.S. researchers may apply for free allocations of high-performance computer time and storage resources that are available through the National Science Foundation (NSF) Office of Cyberinfrastructure’s (OCI) TeraGrid for the allocation period of October 1, 2009 through September 30, 2010. 


Deadline for application: 15 July 2009, midnight local times
Allocation period: 1 Oct 2009 – 30 Sept 2010

Apply for allocation (TeraGrid "POPS" site)

Each quarter, a panel of computational experts known as the TeraGrid Resource Allocations Committee (TRAC) evaluates requests primarily on the appropriateness of the proposal for TeraGrid resources. At the June 2009 TRAC meeting, 88 requests were reviewed. TRAC awarded more than 180 million processor hours of compute time and nearly 600 terabytes of data storage.

TeraGrid resources currently include more than one petaflop/s of combined computing capability and more than 30 petabytes of online and archival data storage from 11 resource provider sites across the nation. TeraGrid, the NSF, and the TeraGrid Science Advisory Board are currently preparing for a successful transition to the next phase of the NSF-supported cyberinfrastructure, called eXtreme Digital (XD), which involves a phased transition to a suite of resources and services that exceed the current aggregate computational power on TeraGrid.

While the evolution of HPC systems is widely accepted, March 2010 will see the end of service of a number of systems at several TeraGrid sites. Systems that were funded under NSF OCI’s Track 2 Program—specifically Ranger at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC), Kraken at the National institute for Computational Science (NICS), and a third system slated for 2010—will offer continuity. TeraGrid has proposed plans which are under review that will offer continued support for additional current systems through March 2011. With continuity of service as a shared goal, TeraGrid will provide transition documentation, training, consulting, and application support services before, during, and after the introduction of XD.
