Radon Cluster Retirement

April 2, 2018  8:00am – 8:01am

The Radon cluster has reached the end of its useful lifespan and will be decommissioned on Monday, April 2nd, 2018.

Radon has served the Purdue research community for a great many years and has undergone radical changes during that time. However, during that time the landscape of research computing options at Purdue has also changed radically.

The Community Clusters now serve a variety of different research need profiles from traditional HPC to high-memory applications to GPU-enabled code, each of which are expanded or replaced every year. Scholar is available for instructional use of research tools within courses.
Data Workbench, one of our newest offerings, serves those with smaller scale interactive needs. Radon's mission has been subsumed and is better served by these newer resources.

If you still have need for research computing resources, please contact us at rcac-help@purdue.edu to discuss your options, or you may explore them yourself on this website. Faculty and staff may directly purchase access to any of the currently available resources from the "Purchase" menu on our website as well, by simply selecting what they are looking for and providing a Purdue account number.

We look forward to continuing the development of Research Computing services to meet your evolving needs. Thank you for your support!
