What is the National Research Platform (NRP)?

The National Research Platform is a partnership of more than 50 institutions, led by researchers at UC San Diego, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and UC Berkeley and includes the National Science Foundation, Department of Energy, and multiple research universities in the US and around the world.

The major resource of NRP is a heterogenous globally distributed, open system that fetures a variety of CPUs, GPUs and storage, arranged into a Kubernetes cluster called Nautilus.
