Information Technology Services


The Research Computing Center at Florida State University enables research and education by maintaining a diverse campus cyberinfrastructure and by providing training opportunities and dedicated consulting.

What we Do


Our HPC Cluster provides over 182 TFLOPS of compute to researchers at FSU. We also provide an Interactive Cluster (Spear), and a Virtual Machine Cloud Platform.


We provide two high I/O parallel file systems, Panasas and Lustre. We also provide a general-purpose filesystem, NoleStor, for archival storage with the ability to replicate to partner institutions.


In addition to comprehensive support for our core services, we also provide research consulting and assistance, and we also host many outreach and training events.
