Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment
Starting in 2001, the National Science Foundation program TeraGrid has developed into one of the world's largest and most comprehensive Grid projects, offering free resources and services to more than 10,000 scientists. It's successor, the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) has started in July 2011 and is expected to excel the previous program in terms of service quality while lowering technological entry barriers at the same time. These and other goals are to be achieved in the project's five year grant period with an overall budget of $121 million. Currently, the infrastructure is used by more than 30 eScience gateways and many scientific communities.
