High Performance Compute Cluster

The FSU high performance computing (HPC) cluster is an integrated group of systems connected by an ultra-fast InfiniBand data network. The HPC, provided by the ITS Research Computing Center (RCC), is designed to run compute-intensive programs that require more memory and CPUs than an average computer can support. The HPC is ideal for distributed parallel computations, data processing and analysis and long-running batch computing jobs. Using the HPC, university researchers can process and analyze complex datasets and computationally intensive tasks, condensing weeks of work into days or hours. 

  • Powerful computing | >16,000 cores and >700 nodes provide powerful and scalable HPC resources 
  • Popular platforms | run jobs on OpenMPIHADOOPPythonMATLAB, GPUs, CUDA and more 
  • Software compatibility | users can use general purpose applications or write and compile custom software to run on HPC 
  • Batch jobs | ability to submit jobs to run independently until finished
  • Fully supported | training, programming and troubleshooting provided by team of researchers and technical professionals
