Two supercomputing options are available for faculty and students:
ITSS Computing Cluster
To request an account on the computing cluster, please email Robert Sand. Access is intended for research and is restricted to faculty, research staff, and students who are actively working on a research project with a faculty member. Please provide the Internet ID for any individuals who need access. If you need specialized software to be loaded onto the cluster, please let Robert Sand know that as well.
Minnesota Supercomputer Institute
Facilities housed at the Minnesota Supercomputer Institute, an interdisciplinary research program of the University of Minnesota. The mission of the Supercomputer Institute is to foster high-performance computing research. The Supercomputer Center has excellent support facilities included in an advanced communications network. In particular, such high-end machines include an IBM SP, IBM Regatta and SGI Origin 3800 supercomputers as well as a Linux Cluster supercomputer. The supercomputers of the Minnesota Supercomputer Center are accessible from UMD by a high-speed data link. In addition, the Institute provides an important resource for investigating state-of-the-art computational algorithms and scientific visualization methods.
