- Once only used by a handful of researchers in a few research communities, advanced computing has become essential to future progress
- Supports modeling, simulation, and extraction of knowledge from huge data collections
- Promotes resource sharing between and among academic institutions to optimize the accessibility and use of HPC assets
- Priority access by UT researchers to a portion of Lonestar 5 at Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC)
The UTRC, in collaboration with the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC), leverages advanced computing and visualization resources via TACC's Lonestar system. Through the UTRC, UT System researchers have unique access to allocations on Lonestar, one of the world's most productive HPC resources that integrates shared memory nodes, GPU nodes, tools for high-throughput computing, and remote interactive visualization. TACC support services will enable UT researchers to use UTRC resources effectively as they assist research teams in employing the systems, software, and expertise necessary to foster educational innovation. The staff is dedicated to providing consulting and training required for users to take full advantage of TACC resources, services, and educational programs that are contributing to the development of the next generation of researchers.
