This two-year project has developed and enabled sharing of a series of virtual applications related to renewable energy, furthering online teaching and collaboration.</p> 31497 Wed, 23 Apr 2014 07:22:29 GMT iSGTW RSS Feed Opportunistic compute cycles extend the long tail of science http://www.isgtw.org/feature/opportunistic-compute-cycles-extend-long-tail-science <p> Today, more than 2 million CPU hours per day and a petabyte of data traverse the Open Science Grid, much of it on ESNet and Internet2. One week in April marked a new weekly production record of 17 million compute hours.</p> <p> Over the next decade, data- and compute-intensive science will become the norm and not just the exception, as scientists from every domain place new and greater demands on campus technology and infrastructure providers. Many campuses will move toward solutions such as OSG, which provides not only economies of scale, but also a community focused on sharing resources for the greatest good and the greatest discoveries.</p> 33338 Wed, 23 Apr 2014 07:22:29 GMT iSGTW RSS Feed Fighting the flu with high-performance computing http://www.isgtw.org/spotlight/fighting-flu-high-performance-computing <p> Researchers are using PRACE supercomputing resources to tackle the seasonal flu bug. By modeling the process through which viruses insert their genetic material into our cells, they hope to further development of vaccines.</p> 33255 Wed, 23 Apr 2014 07:22:28 GMT iSGTW RSS Feed Simulations track history behind decades of geographic expansion http://www.isgtw.org/visualization/simulations-track-history-behind-decades-geographic-expansion <p></p> 33156 Wed, 23 Apr 2014 07:22:29 GMT iSGTW RSS Feed
