We can help you analyze your research data on your own personal computer, for which we provide much research software. If you’re considering purchasing a new computer for research, we recommend getting one with at least 16 GB of memory.
OIT’s Apps@UT server is pre-loaded with research software. That server provides you with 50 GB of long-term storage (also available on your personal computer as a mapped drive via T-Storage), 40 GB of main memory, 6 CPU cores, GPU accelerators and, by special request, can run jobs for more than 24 hours. For many popular analyses, this system can analyze 50 million records in around a minute. Although the software is for Windows, you can easily control it from a Mac or a tablet computer. To use it, simply log on here with your UT NetID.
If you require more power, you can lease a Virtual Machine (VM), which is the equivalent to your own dedicated single server, with as many resources (CPUs, GPUs, storage) as you can afford. It includes features such as:
If you need still more power, the High Performance & Scientific Computing team offers the ISAAC compute cluster. For help with high performance and scientific computing services, ISAAC Open Enclave and ISAAC Secure Enclave, visit High Performance & Scientific Computing.
