The National Science Foundation (NSF) funded Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE - https://www.xsede.org/) is the most advanced powerful and robust collection of integrated digital resources and services in the world. It is a single virtual system that scientists can use to interactively share computing resources, data and expertise. XSEDE’s expert staff integrate supercomputers, high-end visualization and data analysis resources and services, making them easier to use for research and teaching.
