High Performance and Clustered Computing Resources

The College of Computing has over 1000 remotely accessible, high-performance and clustered computing nodes and over 6000 cores located in multiple data centers and research labs for the purpose of performing computational research and instructional work.  Most of these high-performance computational clusters have been purchased by faculty for specific research needs. Access to these resources require faculty approval which can be requested by sending a request to helpdesk@cc.gatech.edu.  The TSO Research Program Support Group is responsible for the coordination of infrastructure and services with regard to these clusters.  The following table lists these computational resources and their primary uses. Please observe appropriate research group conventions for the machines. If you don't know then ask someone in the research group. You may also be interested in:
