High Performance Computing

West Virginia University provides a variety of services and software that can assist with computational intensive or digital humanities research.


The WVU High Performance Computing (HPC) facilities support computationally intensive research that require high computational capabilities and low-latency.

Data Analysis & Visualization

Free access to MATLAB, training resources, and software packages are available for HPC users.

HPC Partners

WVU partners with several regional and national organizations that support big data computing.

HPC can solve large problems in science, engineering, or business using higher computing power than can be achieved from a desktop computer or workstation.
