The mission of ITS’ Research Technologies unit is to facilitate cost-effective access to IT resources for the research community at Case Western Reserve, including high performance computing (HPC) services, system administration services, database design and programming services, data visualization and graphics processing, a high-speed network, data storage and pre-award IT consultation. Our organization is prepared to connect faculty with emerging technologies so they can think beyond the possible.
Research requires significant amounts of computational power. HPC increasingly is a critical resource for an expanding spectrum of disciplines, since it enables researchers to solve large-scale, data-intensive, advanced computational problems on topics across the disciplinary spectrum faster, more accurately and more efficiently.
The HPC system provides immediate, cost-effective access to a supercomputer capable of supporting the work of researchers in all departments, across all disciplines at the university. The system's thousands of processors working in parallel; discipline-specific software; visualization tools; multi-tiered, scalable storage; and high-speed networking support the high-caliber research taking place at Case Western Reserve.
