Like other research endeavors in science and engineering, they require significant amounts of computational power. UTech Research Computing provide 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.

A research computing resource comprised of thousands of processors working in parallel; discipline-specific software; visualization tools; multi-tiered, scalable storage; and high-speed networking enables research of this caliber at Case Western Reserve University. Resources such as the high performance computing cluster provide immediate, cost-effective access to a supercomputer capable of supporting the work of researchers in all departments, across all disciplines at the university.

In addition to high performance computing, the UTech Research Computing group provides data visualization and graphics processing; data storage; database creation, management and consultation; a high-speed network; and funding-agency application consultation.

Research Networking

Networks serve as the platform for innovation and collaboration. The following resources can be utilized for research and scholarship activity.

Science DMZ

Science DMZ

A Science DMZ is a portion of the network, built at or near the campus or laboratory's local network perimeter that is designed such that the equipment, configuration, and security policies are optimized for high-performance scientific applications rather than for general-purpose business systems or “enterprise” computing.

External Resources

The resources maintained at CWRU is of a modest size in comparison with other HPC / supercomputer resources.  While our resource serves well for many research uses, it is not of adequate size to handle larger computational tasks that may require several hundred or several thousand simultaneous processors.  For those larger jobs, there are other resources available to CWRU researchers that are both free and commercially available

XSEDE
