The National Science Foundation (NSF) Cloud Project team along with the University of Texas Research Infrastructure will be offering two sessions on Tuesday, January 9, 2016, at the UTSA Main Campus John Peace Library Assembly Room (JPL 4.04.22).

From 9 a.m. – 10 a.m., Paul Rad, Assistant Director of the Open Cloud Institute, will present on the NSF Cloud Project and discuss UTSA's partnership on a $10 million dollar grant to support the design, deployment and initial operation of Chameleon, a large-scale testbed consisting of 650 cloud nodes and five petabytes of storage. Chameleon will allow researchers to develop and experiment with new cloud architectures and applications.

From 10 a.m. – 11 a.m., Dr. Preston Broadfoot, UT System Program Manager, will present on UT Research initiative to advance current and research pursuits by providing UT institutions access to advanced computational systems with large data storage capabilities. Access to the advanced systems will allow researchers at UT institutions to compete and collaborate more efficiently.
