National Resources

Bridging to National Cyberinfrastructure


CAC provides advice on how to access NSF’s largest-scale systems that are available through the Advanced Cyberinfrastructure Coordination Ecosystem: Services & Support (ACCESS) project. The ACCESS allocations process uses merit-review principles to ensure efficient and effective use of their computing resources.

CAC is engaged in several projects with ACCESS resource providers. We were awarded a Jetstream2 regional cloud by Indiana University that has been integrated with Cornell’s Red Cloud, and we're developing training for Jetstream2 users.

We're also developing training for TACC’s Frontera supercomputer.

Cornell Virtual Workshop training is available to the national community on demand.

Contact the Campus Champion

A Campus Champion is available at CAC to assist you in requesting an ACCESS allocation and to help you get started on national resources.


Researchers may apply for an allocation of computing time on DOE HPC platforms through the DOE INCITE Leadership Computing Program. The Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (INCITE) program is an annual competition. Cornell researchers have received INCITE awards for applications such as alternative fuel combustion simulations, many-body quantum simulations, and molecular dynamics.
