Resources Overview

XSEDE is composed of multiple partner institutions known as Service Providers or SPs, each of which contributes one or more allocatable services. Resources include High Performance Computing (HPC) machines, High Throughput Computing (HTC) machines, visualization, data storage, testbeds, and services. This page provides a detailed list of XSEDE computing resources at each of the partner sites with links to detailed specifications for each machine.
