Partner on Research Proposals
The mission of RCAC staff is to support and advance research discoveries at Purdue through partnerships with faculty and research groups. Our research scientists collaborate with faculty on grant proposals and support them by providing cyberinfrastructure solutions to funded projects.
Our staff have experience with many software languages and development environments. Bring in our expertise to help your researchers create or modify software to take advantage of the latest technology in advanced computation, web frameworks, data analysis, visualization, sharing, and management.
As science has become more data-intensive, research data management is consuming more of researchers’ time. In the era of "big data", decisions regarding data are complex and fraught with larger consequences. Purdue Libraries data experts can help with managing, organizing, describing, and sharing your data on RCAC systems.
Education and Outreach
RCAC provides a variety of educational and outreach program to its community of researchers. From workshops on the basics of cluster computing to supporting the education of soon-to-be scientists and HPC professionals at Student Cluster Challenges on a national and international stage, RCAC provides the resources to educate future HPC professionals and scientists.
The Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) is an NSF-funded cyberinfrastructure linking the most advanced, powerful, and robust collection of integrated advanced computing resources and digital services to the open science community. Our team is happy to help you access and navigate the array of XSEDE resources and services.
