UF Research Computing continues to expand its hardware, software, and consulting support. An overview of services available can be found online in the 2014 Research Computing Faculty Brochure.
The Research Computing staff focus their efforts on activities that depend on large-scale computing activities such as high-performance computing, high-throughput computing, storage needs, and large data sets (big data). Proposal support is also available–staff can provide assistance with commitment letters, computing facilities description text, and information for your proposal’s budget sheet. Additional consulting services are also available, as is advanced training for clusters and selected applications used in high-performance computing. The training schedule is posted on the department wiki.
An upgrade is in progress to enhance the performance, functionality, and stability of data storage services used for research computing. Please email the Research Computing staff with any questions about utilizing any of UF’s high performance computing resources or to get help with a proposal.
