The Research Computing Center provides access to high-performance computing and visualization resources; high-capacity storage and backup; software; high-speed networking; and hosted data sets.
Resources are centrally managed by RCC staff who ensure the accessibility, reliability, and security of the compute and storage systems--a major advantage of using RCC resources versus an independently owned and operated compute cluster and storage system. The visualization lab in Crerar Library offers researchers the opportunity to visually explore and share their data. RCC’s software library grants access to a vast array of programs. A high-throughput network connects the Midway compute cluster to the UChicago campus network and the public internet through a number of high-bandwidth uplinks. To support data-driven research RCC hosts a number of large datasets to be accessed within the RCC compute environment.
