The HUBzero Platform for Scientific Collaboration is a free, open source software platform used to create web sites that support research, education, and online collaboration.  It was originally created by researchers at Purdue University to support the web site for nanotechnology researchers.  It now supports more than 60 different sites or community "hubs" covering a wide range of disciplines, including cancer research, pharmaceutical manufacturing, earthquake mitigation, volcanic activity, environmental modeling, and cybersecurity applications, to name a few.  All together, these sites have served 1,800,000 visitors during the past year alone.  It's easy to create a new web site based on HUBzero.  Simply launch the virtual machine image in the Amazon Web Services Marketplace, or install the open source Debian or RedHat packages on your own hardware.  Look for our videos on YouTube.
