XSEDE: More Than Just Supercomputers — It’s How To Use Them, Too!

To many familiar with the world of high-performance computing, the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) means ‘supercomputers’ and not much more. Often, success stories involve a research team using XSEDE-allocated supercomputers like Stampede at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) or Comet at the San Diego Supercomputer Center. But what good are supercomputers without the expertise throughout the community to properly use them? Even worse, what good is training if the community is not aware of it? XSEDE is preparing the current and next generation of c...
