About HPC

High-Performance Computing (HPC) is available in a number of locations throughout campus. Whether you wish to work on a department cluster, a UC centralized facility, or in the cloud, UCIT R&D can assist you with your needs. We can also help with obtaining new clusters, co-location, and new cloud-based initiatives.

UC researchers and research assistants have access to the state of Ohio’s powerful Ohio Supercomputer Center’s (OSC) High Performance Computing clusters, software and expertise, as well as Amazon Web Services. UCIT R&D facilitates access to these resources and assists researchers.
