Enabling Diversity of High Performance Computing Research on Campus
High Performance Computing Club
Prior to April 2015, UW students lacked open access to high performance computing (HPC) resources. In Spring 2015, STF agreed to partially fund a request for $1,000,000 to invest in HPC resources and ensure UW’s future as a leader in supercomputing. To accommodate the HPC Club's rapidly expanding membership and equip UW students with the computational resources they need, we asked for the remaining $630,000 to purchase more computing power on Hyak last Spring. We only spent two-thirds of the funds due to unforeseen delays with the rollout of the Mox supercomputer. We are at capacity once again and ask for the unspent funds to purchase resources that will enable training and research in a diversity of disciplines.
