Stampede charges computational science forward in tackling complex societal challenges
Date:9/26/2011

The Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) at the University of Texas at Austin today announced that it will deploy and support a world-class supercomputer with comprehensive computing and visualization capabilities for the national open science community.

Made possible by a $27.5 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF), this new deployment is part of the NSF "eXtreme Digital" (XD) program, an integrating system for the majority of NSF's high end computational resources made widely available to U.S. researchers.

The new system, "Stampede," will be built by TACC in partnership with Dell and Intel to support the nation's scientists in addressing the most complex scientific and engineering problems. Stampede is anticipated to go into full production in January 2013 and will be available to researchers for four years.

The estimated investment will be more than $50 million over the four year period; the project may be renewed for another system deployed in 2017 which would enable four additional years of open science research.

"Stampede will be one of the most powerful systems in the world and will be uniquely comprehensive in its technological capabilities," said TACC Director Jay Boisseau. "Many researchers will leverage Stampede not only as part of their breakthrough scientific research, but for all of their scientific research, including visualization, data analysis and data-intensive computing. We expect the Stampede system to be an exemplar for supporting both simulation-based science and data-driven science."

When Stampede is deployed in 2013, it will be the most powerful system in the NSF XD environment, currently the most advanced, comprehensive, and robust collection of integrated digital resources and services enabling open science research in the world.

As a critical part of XD, the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) consortium, comprising more than
