Jetstream: Targeting the Long Tail of Science…

Improving HPC access to the so-called long tail of science is an ongoing NSF priority. Several initiatives, funded at least in part by NSF, are underway and one – Jetstream – is the first NSF-funded HPC Cloud targeted directly at domain scientists and engineers who typically have limited access to HPC resources and limited expertise.
