Services

We provide computational services to the FSU Research Community. Many services are available free of charge, but we also provide buy-in opportunities for research groups in need of resources.
  • High Performance Computing

    The High Performance Computing (HPC) Cluster is the core of our computational infrastructure. With more than 12,490 cores and 708 nodes, the HPC Cluster provides powerful and scalable high performance computing resources for running large, multi-threaded and distributed parallel computations.

  • Spear Dedicated Nodes

    The Spear cluster is a collection of Linux servers and compute nodes intended to provide dedicated nodes for departments and research groups that need their own servers.  Popular applications of Spear nodes include simulation, data analysis, visualization and interactive use of powerful command line and graphical software tools including MATLAB, VMD and others.

  • Cloud Virtualization Cluster

    The Cloud Virtualization Cluster is RCC's cloud computing platform. Based on the powerful oVirt system, it is designed to provide users with a framework for quick deployment and management of virtual systems for web, database, and other self-managed applications associated with RCC resources.

  • Parallel Storage

    Registered RCC account holders have access to the GPFS system, which is a parallel data storage and sharing system with support for rapid I/O for HPC and Spear jobs which allows files and data to be stored in a dedicated and private home directory or shared among specified groups of RCC users.

  • Research Archival Storage

    The Research Archival Storage System (RAS) is a general purpose long-term digital storage archive for research data.  The system is designed to provide a cost-effective, long-term solution for research groups needing to store large amounts of data on our systems for potentially extended periods of time.
