Scientific Computing and Data

Partnering with researchers to advance scientific discovery

High Performance Computing

The primary asset for Scientific Computing is the supercomputer Minerva:

  • 14,304 Intel Gold 8168 24C, 2.7 GHz compute cores (48 cores per node with two sockets in each node)
  • 286 nodes with 192 GB of memory per node
  • 65.7 terabytes of total memory, 350 terabytes of solid-state storage and nearly 30 petabytes of spinning storage accessed via IBM’s Spectrum Scale/General Parallel File System (GPFS)
  • total of 1.2 petaflops of compute power

Research Data Services

We partner with scientists to conduct their research with the right tools and services:

  • eRAP is a web-based interactive tool for data entry and reporting. Custom databases are rapidly developed for your longitudinal single and multi-site studies.
  • REDCap is a secure web application for building and managing online surveys and databases. Track data manipulation, user activity, export procedures, scheduling, calendaring, and branching logic.
  • All Research Data Services are HIPAA compliant.
