Information Technology at Purdue (ITaP) operates a significant shared cluster computing infrastructure developed over several years through focused acquisitions using funds from grants, faculty startup packages, and institutional sources. These "community clusters" are now at the foundation of Purdue's research cyberinfrastructure.
We strongly encourage any Purdue faculty or staff with computational needs to join this growing community and enjoy the enormous benefits this shared infrastructure provides:
Through the Community Cluster Program, Purdue affiliates have invested several million dollars in computational and storage resources from Q4 2006 to the present with great success in both the research accomplished and the money saved on equipment purchases.
ITaP is currently offering purchase of access to Carter. To purchase access to Carter today, go to the Carter Access Purchase page. For updates on the ITaP's community cluster program, please subscribe to the mailing list of the Community Cluster Program.
