The Extensible Terascale Facility, or TeraGrid, is a multi-year effort to build and deploy the world's largest, most comprehensive, distributed infrastructure for open scientific research, to be used by researchers from diverse scientific and engineering fields. Following four years of construction, a new, five-year award totaling $150 million will be used for operations and enhancements.
