NSF awards IU $6.6M for the Jetstream science and engineering research cloud
IU’s Jetstream (awarded December 1, 2014 by the National Science Foundation) together with the NSF-supported Bridges system at the Pittsburgh Computing Center expand the NSF’s eXtreme Digital (XD) program, the world’s most comprehensive collection of integrated digital resources and services for open science. These systems provide novel ways of accessing and interacting with supercomputing resources that will open high-performance computing to a broader portfolio of emerging scientific frontiers and new communities of researchers.
IU cybersecurity project earns industry top honors
The Software Assurance Marketplace (SWAMP), run in part by IU Pervasive Technology Institute (PTI) staff, has earned the 2014 Information Security Executive (ISE) North America Project of the Year Award in the academic/public sector category. Supported by a $23.4 million grant from the Department of Homeland Security’s Science and Technology Directorate, the SWAMP provides a state-of-the-art open resource where software developers, software assurance tool developers and software researchers can collaborate and improve software assurance activities in a safe, secure environment.
