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 systems can be utilized to solve large problems in physical, biological and social sciences, engineering, humanities or business using higher computing power than can be achieved from a desktop computer or workstation.

The WVU High Performance Computing (HPC) facilities support computationally intensive research that require high computational capabilities and low-latency. HPC resources assist research teams at WVU to greatly reduce their computational analysis times. This includes free access to community nodes for researchers at all institutes of higher learning in West Virginia. Researchers can also purchase individual nodes that can be used on a first-come-first-serve basis and are otherwise shared by the community.

HPC users have access to more than 400 TB free storage and can also purchase group storage on the cluster that will allow data to be easily shared between researchers. ITS also offers storage in the centrally managed and secure Research Data Depot where storage can be purchased at a cost effective rate for five years.

Contact the Research Computing group of Information Technology Services (ITS) for more information about  High Performance Computing or the  Research Data Depot.


HPC training resources are available for new users.
