Abstract

Jetstream will be the first production cloud resource supporting general science and engineering research within the XD ecosystem. In this report we describe the motivation for proposing Jetstream, the configuration of the Jetstream system as funded by the NSF, the team that is implementing Jetstream, and the communities we expect to use this new system. Our hope and plan is that Jetstream, which will become available for production use in 2016, will aid thousands of researchers who need modest amounts of computing power interactively. The implementation of Jetstream should increase the size and disciplinary diversity of the US research community that makes use of the resources of the XD ecosystem.
