High Performance & Scientific Computing


The High Performance & Scientific Computing group provides research computing resources and services to the University community.  The resources provided include the newly branded Infrastructure for Scientific Applications and Advanced Computing, or ISAAC for short.  ISAAC includes resources for research involving non-sensitive information and sensitive information named ISAAC Open Enclave and ISAAC Secure Enclave, respectively. 

ISAAC is a rebranding and is a replacement for what was formerly known as the Advanced Computing Facility (ACF).

Support for use of ISAAC resources include system administration support, scientific computing support, documentation, training, software installation and maintenance, and other support services. 

General information about the resources and services are available under the Overview menu and covers things like requesting an account, using the ISAAC portal, node and storage investments for researchers with research funds, and system usage information, to name a few.
