Unlocking the power of data to accelerate discovery

Introducing Bridges-2


Bridges-2, PSC's newest supercomputer, will debut in the fall of 2020.  It will be funded  by a $10-million grant from the National Science Foundation. 

Bridges-2 will provide transformative capability for rapidly evolving, computation-intensive and data-intensive research, creating opportunities for collaboration and convergence research. It will support both traditional and non-traditional research communities and applications. Bridges-2 will integrate new technologies for converged, scalable HPC, machine learning and data; prioritize researcher productivity and ease of use; and provide an extensible architecture for interoperation with complementary data-intensive projects, campus resources, and clouds.

Bridges-2 will be available at no cost for research and education, and at cost-recovery rates for other purposes.

Bridges-2 Webinar May 28 2020 Join this free webinar for an introduction to Bridges-2.
PEARC20 July 26 - 30 2020 Join us at PEARC20 to hear about Bridges-2.
Early User Program Begins late summer 2020 Designed to allow users access to Bridges-2 capabilities before production starts. Participants have an opportunity to start their research on Bridges-2 early, and are expected to provide feedback to PSC throughout the program as well as completing a survey when it concludes.
Grant applications open June 15 - July 15 2020 Apply for a grant through the XSEDE Resource Allocation System. See for details.
Production operations begin Fall 2020 Bridges-2 is in full production
