[Words appear: Jetstream2: AI for Everyone]

[Video: The camera pans past a row of large cabinets containing a supercomputer.]

[Words appear: Jetstream | cloud-based supercomputer]

Narrator speaks: Since 2014, the Jetstream system has given thousands of U.S. researchers access to a powerful cloud-based environment that complements other National Science Foundation systems—all from a laptop or tablet—allowing them to explore and understand immense amounts of data.

The on-demand, 24/7 system includes discipline-specific applications. Supporting computation, experimentation, and teaching, Jetstream benefits researchers from a range of fields by focusing on usability and support.

You can even create virtual machines that look and feel like your lab workstation or home machine with thousands of times the computing power.

Winona speaks: Another outstanding aspect of the Jetstream project has been the Research Experience for Undergraduates Program.

Each summer, Jetstream trains students on cloud-based technologies for projects that capitalize on Indiana University's leadership in fields like bioinformatics, data visualization, and advanced media.

[Words appear: Christine Campbell, Informatics major, Luddy School of Informatics, Indiana University Bloomington]

Christine speaks: My absolute favorite takeaway was being able to learn how to manage data on such a large scale. And then I actually was able to exercise my skills in Python and R to write scripts in order to use our machine learning techniques.

[Words appear: Mathew Mercer, Information Systems major, Kelley School of Business, Indiana University Bloomington]

Mathew speaks: I think I was exposed to more technical things when it came to cloud computing but also working with different people and different areas of expertise.

[Words appear: How is Jetstream2 different?]

Narrator speaks: Jetstream2 is a transformative update and will provide 8 petaFLOPS of virtual supercomputing power to simplify data analysis, boost discovery, and increase availability of AI resources.

[Video: A man stands in front of a whiteboard.]

[Words appear: John Burns, IT Informatics Director, IU School of Medicine Radiology & IU Health Physicians Radiology, IUPUI]

John speaks: Jetstream has given us an always on and always available compute system so we can host and participate in federated learning. We could do this training on a supercomputer system but that is a scheduled task. And the issue that comes with that is we need to run for long periods of time and be available for when our partners are running.

[Video: John types on a keyboard. A view of his screen.]

So Jetstream has enabled us to run kind of 24-by-7. We start up the server, we load

the data, and we're ready to go and work with our colleagues. It is just a pleasure to work with the team at Jetstream. I'm really looking forward to working with Jetstream2.

[Video: John stands in front of a whiteboard.]

I love that there is new hardware and more GP resources. Really looking forward to taking advantage of those.

Narrator speaks: Jetstream2 is designed to be easily used by researchers who have limited experience with high-performance computing and software in hopes of serving smaller academic communities with no previous access to such resources.

[Video: The blue and green lights inside a Jetstream2 cabinet.]

This means larger and faster storage systems; commitment to greater than 99% uptime; the latest computation accelerators via Nvidia A100 graphics processors (more than 360 of them); streamlined deployment of virtual clusters; emphasis on ease-of-use, broad accessibility, and AI for everyone; on-demand interactive computing and persistent services for science gateways; and configurable environments and programmable cyberinfrastructure.

[Words appear: Dave Hancock, Director for Advanced Cyberinfrastructure, Research Technologies, Indiana University]

Dave speaks: We intend Jetstream2 to be a democratizing force within the NSF ecosystem, allowing researchers and educators access to cutting-edge resources regardless of project scale.
