The Research Computing Center engages with both the FSU Research Community and partners all over the world.
The RCC participates in the following consortiums:
- Sunshine State Education and Research Computing Alliance (SSERCA) - SSERCA is an alliance of Florida Universities with the mission to further the development of a state-wide computational science infrastructure of advanced scientific computing, communication, and education resources by promoting cooperation between Florida's universities.
- XSEDE - The Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment is a National Science Foundation effort to provide resources to supercomputing facilities across the nation. XSEDE provides educational, collaborative, and computing resources to researchers and research computing facilities.
- Coalition for Academic Scientific Computation - Founded in 1989, the Coalition for Academic Scientific Computation (CASC) is an educational nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization with 64 member institutions representing many of the nation's most forward-thinking universities and computing centers.
- Southeastern Universities Research Association (SURA) - U.S. Department of Energy through Jefferson Science Associates - a SURA/Computer Sciences Corporation joint venture. It also operates the SURA Residence Facility, accommodating national and international researchers who use JLab's unique facilities.
The RCC partners with the following technology vendors:
- DellXL - Dell XL is a self-sustained consortium of computing centers that employ large-scale Dell systems. With the participation of Dell and Dell partners, the consortium members meet twice a year to exchange technology information and cooperate on projects to enhance the scalability of cluster computing.
- IBM - The Spectrum Scale (GPFS) storage system is a parallel storage system with high performance. In 2018, RCC purchased and consolidated our prior storage systems, Lustre and Panasas, onto GPFS.
