Welcome to the Cloud

The Green Cloud was a scientific computing project actively developed by faculty and students at the University of Notre Dame from 2007 until 2012.  Using an innovative technology called grid heating, the Green Cloud provided a distributed computing platform that not only drastically reduced cluster upkeep costs, but also helped the environment at the same time.
