Resource:San Diego Supercomputer Center

Name: Resource:San Diego Supercomputer Center
Description: Founded in 1985, the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) enables international science and engineering discoveries through advances in computational science and data-intensive, high-performance computing. SDSC is considered a leader in data-intensive computing, providing resources, services and expertise to the national research community including industry and academia. The mission of SDSC is to extend the reach of scientific accomplishments by providing tools such as high-performance hardware technologies, integrative software technologies, and deep interdisciplinary expertise to these communities.

From 1997 to 2004, SDSC extended its leadership in computational science and engineering to form the National Partnership for Advanced Computational Infrastructure (NPACI), teaming with approximately 40 university partners around the country. Today, SDSC is an Organized Research Unit of the University of California, San Diego with a staff of talented scientists, software developers, and support personnel.

A broad community of scientists, engineers, students, commercial partners, museums, and other facilities work with SDSC to develop cyberinfrastructure-enabled applications to help manage their extreme data needs. Projects run the gamut from creating astrophysics visualization for the American Museum of Natural History, to supporting more than 20,000 users per day to the Protein Data Bank, to performing large-scale, award-winning simulations of the origin of the universe or how a major earthquake would affect densely populated areas such as southern California. Along with these data cyberinfrastructure tools, SDSC also offers users full-time support including code optimization, training, 24-hour help desk services, portal development and a variety of other services.

As one of the NSF's first national supercomputer centers, SDSC served as the data-intensive site lead in the agency's TeraGrid program, a multiyear effort to build and deploy the world's first large-scale infrastructure for open scientific research. SDSC currently provides advanced user support and expertise for XSEDE (Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment) the five-year NSF-funded program that succeeded TeraGrid in mid-2011.
