High Performance Computing Support
CIS helps faculty and students find on and off-campus resources for High Performance Computing (HPC) needs in their research and teaching. The Scientific Computing Specialist at CIS provides the following services:
- Parallel processing environment setup for specialized (parallel-ready) software such as Materials Studios, MATLAB, and Mathematica.
- HPC machine configuration such as multi-core, SMP, GPGPU, and cluster configuration.
- Code optimization for parallel computing applications using MPI, POSIX Threads, OpenMP, etc.
- Resource preparation for HPC research and education: XSEDE* and other on-campus HPC resources
* XSEDE Resources and Campus Champions
The Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) is the most advanced and powerful collection of integrated digital resources and services in the world. It is a single virtual system that scientists can use to interactively share computing resources, data, and expertise. The Scientific Computing Specialist at CIS supports the use of XSEDE resources for your research and teaching. He serves the HMC community as an XSEDE Campus Champion, providing our campuses with direct access to XSEDE and input to its staff, as well as startup resource allocations for use by campus researchers and assistance in using those resources.
Available to faculty, students and staff at HMC.
