The Cornell University Center for Advanced Computing (CAC) is among a partnership of 17 institutions selected by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to replace and enhance the TeraGrid with a powerful and robust collection of integrated advanced digital resources and services. The five-year program, called XSEDE (Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment), was announced by the NSF on July 25, 2011.

CAC consultants will develop and deploy online training for XSEDE to advance computational science and engineering amongst current and next generation researchers, educators, and practitioners. The Cornell Virtual Workshop learning platform will be used to deliver the educational modules, a proven technology accessed by over 10,000 students since its inception. CAC will also be analyzing the systems reliability of advanced supercomputers that will be serving our nation’s scientists and engineers.
