With recent refinements to the Yellowstone delivery and installation schedule and based on feedback from users, CISL has extended the deadline for University and NCAR Accelerated Scientific Discovery (ASD) submissions to March 5, 2012.
CISL will make dedicated, large-scale resources available on NCAR's forthcoming Yellowstone system from approximately August through October 2012 as part of its ASD initiative for university and NCAR research. Eligible projects may span all of the geosciences and supporting computational sciences.
NSF-supported university researchers interested in applying for ASD computational resources can view eligibility and proposal requirements at: http://www2.cisl.ucar.edu/docs/allocations/asd. Applications are now due March 5, 2012.
NCAR researchers interested in applying for ASD computational resources may view eligibility and proposal requirements at: http://www2.cisl.ucar.edu/docs/allocations/2012nsc/instructions. NCAR ASD projects will be chosen from submissions for NCAR Strategic Capability (NSC) projects, also now due on March 5, 2012.
The Yellowstone system will be a 1.6-petaflops IBM iDataPlex cluster with 74,592 Intel Sandy Bridge EP cores, 149.2 TB of memory, and 11 PB of parallel disk storage. Yellowstone is expected to deliver nearly 30 times the capacity of NCAR's current Bluefire system.
