On February 10, 2016, Jetstream began early operations mode. We have several XSEDE campus champions, expert users, and Jetstream team members now using the system. We will be adding users on an ongoing basis, building up our experiences, fixing problems as we go, and working toward converting Jetstream into fully operational mode in a few weeks.
The Jetstream User Guide is available from the Wiki. This is a work in progress and at the moment the best source for understanding how you really use Jetstream
If you are interested in getting access to Jetstream and finding out about it’s capabilities first hand, please visit https://portal.xsede.org/allocations-overview#types-startup and review the allocations information and process there.

Jetstream, led by the Indiana University Pervasive Technology Institute (PTI), will add cloud-based computation to the national cyberinfrastructure. Researchers will be able to create virtual machines on the remote resource that look and feel like their lab workstation or home machine, but are able to harness thousands of times the computing power.

Jetstream will provide the following core capabilities:
Jetstream will be attractive to communities who have not been users of traditional HPC systems, but who would benefit from advanced computational capabilities. Among those groups are researchers in biology, atmospheric science, observational astronomy, and the social sciences.
