Beginning September 1, United States researchers working with big data will have access to Jetstream, the National Science Foundation's first cloud resource for science and engineering research. The five-year, $11 million grant to create, implement and operate Jetstream, is led by Indiana University's Pervasive Technology Institute.

Jetstream, which is designed to be accessible and approachable to researchers with a variety of backgrounds, will provide 24/7 access to computing and data analysis tools that are integrated with the national research ecosystem.

Atmosphere, a platform developed by CyVerse at the University of Arizona, will manage the cloud resources and provision projects between the remote servers at Indiana University and at the Texas Advanced Computing Center at the University of Texas at Austin.
