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.
