Computational Resources For Researchers
RCAC provides advanced computational resources and services to support Purdue faculty and staff researchers. We also conduct our own research and development to enhance the capabilities of these resources.
News & Events
Informal, one-on-one help is available from staff at Coffee Break Consultations. For more in-depth problems or group training, contact us to schedule a consultation for you or your lab.
Forging The Future of Computing
Anvil is a powerful new supercomputer, available through the NSF's Advanced Cyberinfrastructure Coordination Ecosystem: Services & Support (ACCESS), that will provide advanced computing capabilities to support a wide range of computational and data-intensive research spanning from traditional high-performance computing to modern artificial intelligence applications.
Not only do we provide access to leading-edge computational and data storage systems, we also provide expertise in a broad range of high-performance computing activities from algorithm design and development of effective computing techniques to education and consultation.
Purchase access to world-class computational clusters at a fraction of the cost by joining in a Community Cluster. Dedicated HPC resources without wasting your researchers' time doing IT, and at lower prices from vendors thanks to the larger negotiating power of the community through Purdue IT. Ask us for a trial node!
Store, transfer, manipulate, and archive research data at all scales. Regardless of where your data is simulated or analyzed, RCAC provides a variety of research storage and data transfer resources. Scratch storage spaces for cluster users, and archival or Data Depot working storage are available to all Purdue researchers.
Bring in our expertise to help your researchers create or modify software to take advantage of the latest technologies in advanced computation, provide resources to educate future HPC professionals and scientists, collaborate with faculty on grant proposals, help navigate and access ACCESS resources, and more.
