Goal and Vision of the Center
Collectively (with industry) agree on and specify standardized interfaces between system components in order to promote interoperability, portability, and long-term usability.
Produce a fully integrated suite of systems software and tools for the effective management and utilization of terascale computational resources particularly those at the DOE facilities.
Research and development of more advanced versions of the components as well as OS modifications required to support the scalability and performance requirements of SciDAC applications.
Carry out a software lifecycle plan for support and maintenance of systems software suite.
