More computing resources

From Montana Tech High Performance Computing


Funded by NSF, XSEDE[1] stands for The Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment. Per its website, "XSEDE is a single virtual system that scientists can use to interactively share computing resources, data and expertise."

"The XSEDE ecosystem encompasses a broad portfolio of resources operated by members of the XSEDE Service Provider Forum. These resources include multi-core and many-core high-performance computing (HPC) systems, distributed high-throughput computing (HTC) environments, visualization and data analysis systems, large-memory systems, data storage, and cloud systems. "

XSEDE Campus Champion

Montana Tech has joined the XSEDE's Campus Champions Program[3]. With the XSEDE Campus Cahmpion Program, you can:

  • evaluate or benchmark your project on various XSEDE resources through our campus champion allocation.
  • get assistance for applying allocations on XSEDE resources.
  • get help on using XSEDE resources.

Our campus champion allocations provide test access at:

  • STAMPEDE2 at Texas Advanced Computing Center
  • Bridges at Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center
  • Comet at San Diego Supercomputer Center
  • Jetstream at Indiana University
  • Open Science Grid


NCAR, National Center for Atmospheric Research through CISL, The Computational and Information Systems Laboratory, offers computing resources[4] to university researchers with some restrictions:

  • The work must be within the atmospheric, climate, and related science
  • Allocations must either be supported by an NSF reward; or to a grad student, post-doc or new faculty without a funded science award
