About Jetstream

A national science & engineering cloud

Cloud-based, on-demand

Jetstream, led by the Indiana University Pervasive Technology Institute (PTI), adds cloud-based, on-demand computing and data analysis resources to the national cyberinfrastructure.

With a focus on ease of use and broad accessibility, Jetstream is designed for those who have not previously used high performance computing and software resources. The system is particularly geared toward 21st-century workforce development at small colleges and universities – especially historically black colleges and universities, minority serving institutions, tribal colleges, and higher education institutions in EPSCoR States.
