Researchers across the United States can apply now for Blue Waters resources through the National Science Foundation's Petascale Computing Resource Allocation (PRAC) program. Proposals are due by March 10, 2014.
Blue Waters, built from the latest technologies from Cray, Inc., uses hundreds of thousands of computational cores to achieve peak performance of more than 13 quadrillion calculations per second. If you could multiply two numbers together every second, it would take you millions of years to do what Blue Waters does each second. Blue Waters also has:
