JIC’s Advanced Computing Facility

The Joint Institute for Computational Science offers a large Linux-based Advanced Computing Facility (ACF) cluster for calculations that require long processing times, a high degree of parallelism, or large data sets. You have the opportunity to execute your calculations on thousands of processors simultaneously and have access to large, high-performance storage systems. Several commercial software packages provided by OIT are available for use on ACF (including MatLab, Maple, SAS, and SPSS) as well as a complete suite of open source tools. Researchers also have multiple compiler options for developing and executing custom applications.

All of our software licenses require that you use the software only for academic or administrative purposes. If the software use benefits any outside organization, you need to purchase a commercial license.
