New Team Members

Two new full-time employees have recently come aboard!  In August, Connie Woodward joined our systems group.  Connie is from Texas and has over 18 years of experience working with large data systems and HPC environments.  At RCC, she will be using her expertise to manage our growing storage and HPC queues.

Also joining us is Prasad Maddumage.  Parasad comes from the University of Oklahoma Physics and Astronomy Dept, where he is earning his PhD.  His background includes experience in areas such as cosmology, active galaxy simulations, and econophysics.  At RCC, Prasad will fill the much needed role of applications support specialist.

New Storage System In the Works

We are currently in negotiations with several vendors to purchase an all-new storage system.  This system will support many different use-cases for research data that are not already available at FSU. Learn More »

We've been using HPC since it became a service in 2007. It is the best system for [the kind of work I do] that I've ever used. — Dr. Wei Yang, Biochemistry

HPC Upgrade

We recently completed an upgrade of the High Performance Computing Cluster.  Say hello to 1,280 new cores.  640 new cores are also available for owner-based purchase.

Additionally, we've tuned storage parameters and added an extra 10 Gbps to director nodes for metadata lookups.  Learn More »


Dr. Wei Yang and his team at the FSU Department of Chemistry are using the High Performance Computing Cluster to create complex biochemical simulations.

These simulations enable a dream that biochemists have long had -- the ability to use a computer simulation as a microscope to reveal complex microbiological interactions. Read More »
