This paper discusses the proposed National High Performance Distributed Computing Consortium (NHPDCC), a second-generation high performance computing consortium. NHPDCC will build high performance computing solutions via distributed, heterogeneous machines with diverse, complementary capabilities. Unlike single-machine consortia, NHPDCC will strive to demonstrate practical solutions to current and future “challenge” and “grand-challenge” applications, by utilizing multi-vendor, commercial products, rather than prototypes. Specific software projects to be implemented by the consortium personnel include MPI message-passing standard and related tools, scalable parallel libraries, benchmarks, as well as systems software. Consortium members will benefit through access to both the hardware and software of the consortium. In addition, the synergy generated by interactions among NHPDCC members will be a significant benefit to consortium members
