What We Do
XSEDE's Mission: Substantially enhance the productivity of a growing community of scholars, researchers, and engineers through access to advanced digital services that support open research; and coordinate and add significant value to the leading cyberinfrastructure resources funded by the NSF and other agencies.
Scientists, engineers, social scientists, and humanists around the world – many of them at colleges and universities – use advanced digital resources and services every day. Things like supercomputers, collections of data, and new tools are critical to the success of those researchers, who use them to make our lives healthier, safer, and better.
XSEDE is an NSF-funded virtual organization that integrates and coordinates the sharing of advanced digital services - including supercomputers and high-end visualization and data analysis resources - with researchers nationally to support science.
Digital services provide users with seamless integration to NSF's high-performance computing and data resources. XSEDE's integrated, comprehensive suite of advanced digital services combined with other high-end facilities and campus-based resources, serve as the foundation for a national cyberinfrastructure ecosystem.
XSEDE envisions a world of digitally enabled scholars, researchers, and engineers participating in multidisciplinary collaborations to tackle society's grand challenges.
XSEDE also provides the expertise to ensure that researchers can make the most of the supercomputers and tools. Those include:
