Welcome to the TeraGrid

TeraGrid is an open scientific discovery infrastructure combining leadership class resources at eleven partner sites to create an integrated, persistent computational resource.  Using high-performance network connections, the TeraGrid integrates high-performance computers, data resources and tools, and high-end experimental facilities around the country. Currently, TeraGrid resources include more than a petaflop of computing capability and more than 30 petabytes of online and archival data storage, with rapid access and retrieval over high-performance networks.  This talk will focus on the history and background of the TeraGrid and how Howard University researchers might use this national resource.

Refreshments will be served at 3:15 PM.
