Get Started with XSEDE

  • Researchers
    The National Science Foundation's eXtreme Digital (XD) program is making new infrastructure and next-generation digital services available to researchers and educators to handle the huge volumes of digital information
  • Service Providers
    Service Providers - entities that make a resource visible and coordinated with the national cyberinfrastructure for benefit to the research community - are central to the function of XSEDE
  • College Students
    The goals of the student engagement program are to prepare and sustain a larger, more diverse pool of undergraduate and graduate students to be future researchers and educators. Students will be recruited nationally.
  • Community Outreach
    Increasing diversity is vital to America's future and is a foundation for two of XSEDE's strategic goals: Preparing the current and next generation of scholars, researchers, practitioners, and engineers in the use of advanced digital technologies

What is XSEDE?

The Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) is a single virtual system that scientists can use to interactively share computing resources, data and expertise. People around the world use these resources and services — things like supercomputers, collections of data and new tools — to improve our planet.
