The supercomputers in the XSEDE grid will continue to help solve the world’s toughest dilemmas such as climate change, fatal diseases, and the energy crisis through climate modeling, drug design, or DNA sequencing, and various types of simulation.

NICS manages the NSF supercomputing complex that includes Kraken, a Cray XT5 that is the fastest academic computer in the world, as well as Nautilus, a powerful shared-memory computer used to analyze and visualize the results of computations by other supercomputers.

Eighteen NICS scientists, specialists, and software developers will participate in the XSEDE grant. NICS staff will collect and evaluate the needs and requirements of scientists who use the new grid.
