The TeraGrid is an advanced, integrated, nationally-distributed, open, user-driven, US cyberinfrastructure that enables and supports leading edge scientific discovery and promotes science and technology education. It comprises supercomputing resources, storage systems, visualization resources, data collections, software, and science gateways, integrated by software systems and high bandwidth networks, coordinated through common policies and operations, and supported by technology experts. This paper discusses the TeraGrid itself, examples of the science that is occurring on the TeraGrid today, and applications that are being developed to perform science in the future.
