solid state in the cloud

Nick has worked tirelessly to implement a vision of ubiquitous computing for solid state physics in the cloud, check out his amazing work here : Launch compute jobs dedicated to band structure and phonon dispersion to name two possibilities, producing output data and images including graphs and structures. Moreover, do so without waiting on resources and at a fraction of the cost of traditionally provisioned resources. All in collaborative, intuitive environment that dramatically lowers the entry barrier for scientists and engineers everywhere.
