XSEDE Use Cases

The XSEDE system supports a wide variety of research needs. We use use cases to keep track of the specific ways that researchers use the XSEDE system. Each use case describes a single thing that one can do using XSEDE. At a high level, XSEDE currently supports four kinds of activities: scientific computing, scientific data, account management, and community building. These four activities are made possible by an underlying set of enabling functions.
