Jetstream Overview


As part of the NSF’s eXtreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE), our goal is to aid researchers across the United States that need modest amounts of interactive computing power to do research, teach classes, conduct workshops, etc. Part of the goal in implementing Jetstream is to reach non-traditional researchers that may have High-performance computing (HPC) needs but have not had adequate access or have faced other barriers to HPC usage.

Jetstream is funded by the National Science FoundationThis material is based upon work supported by the National Science Foundation under Grant 1445604. Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Science Foundation.

Jetstream has transitioned to Jetstream2
