This paper discusses the motivation for the creation of cyberinfrastructures to enhance specific technical areas of research. It then goes on to provide a review of two cyberinfrastructures supported by the National Science Foundation, OpenKIM and CAMS, which are geared towards enhancing materials modeling at the atomic scale. Their objectives, accomplishments, and future goals are discussed. Lastly, the future outlook for cyberinfrastructures such as these to impact materials modeling is discussed.
