University Research Computing

The five campuses of the University of Massachusetts are the "consortium within the MGHPCC consortium". UMass has deployed a shared high performance computing cluster at the MGHPCC to support research on the campuses. The shared cluster leverages campus expertise for support. Multiple service models are supported.

The Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Center (MGHPCC) is more than a data center dedicated to supporting the growing research computing needs of five of the most research-intensive universities in Massachusetts: Boston University, Harvard University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Northeastern University and the University of Massachusetts. MGHPCC is a multi-dimensional transformational project traversing a wide spectrum of disciplines and challenges.   Efficiently leveraging information technology, research, private, public sector and government partnerships, economic development and green, sustainable energy as a nexus may be unique in totality to MGHPCC; however, taken in isolation there are riches of lessons that can be applied to an entire universe of projects.

The MGHPCC represents the most significant collaboration among government, industry and public and private universities in the history of the Commonwealth, and it is the first facility of its kind in the nation.
