Texas Tech University High Performance Computing Center
Texas Tech University's High Performance Computing Center (HPCC) was established in 1999 to promote research and teaching on campus through integrating leading-edge high performance computing and visualization for the faculty, staff and students of Texas Tech University. The HPCC provides consulting and assistance to campus researchers with experimental software and/or hardware needs. We also provide training in parallel and grid computing (as used at the facility) and administration for local high performance systems. HPCC serves as a liaison between various teams that are engaged in research. We work to support, configure and port applications to HPCC resources. The High Performance Computing Center's (HPCC) hardware is physically housed in multiple locations. The main production cluster, its file servers and a variety of smaller systems are in the Experimental Sciences Building. Other clusters are located at Reese Center, 14 miles from the main campus. In addition, the HPCC contracts with large-scale providers off campus for additional resources to serve the needs of its customers. The HPCC also facilitates and helps to support involvement of TTU researchers in large-scale computing, storage and data transfer grid and cloud projects. HPCC staff and TTU researchers have been among the industry leaders in development of high performance technologies for distributed computing.
