The High Performance Computing facility in Durham Center provides access to petascale systems that support large-scale computing needs for scientific and instructional endeavors at Iowa State University. View a list of systems and equipment.
Management, Support, & Facilities
The Chief Information Officer will be responsible for the general management of the HPC operation. This includes staff to assist with creating applications, staff access on a case-by-case basis, hosting of all nodes not maintained by a College or Center, coordinating of all utilities, financial administration, etc. The goal is for all to participate so that synergies can be uncovered and resources allocated in the most beneficial way.

HPC Community (HPC Comm)
HPC Comm is an Iowa State University community that promotes dialog focused on high performance computing in research and education. HPC Comm is a university-wide community where ideas and resources can be shared and debate can occur on future technology directions at ISU. HPC Comm is open to all interested ISU faculty and staff.
HPC Comm established a listserve to maintain dialog about, share news, and to publicize events related to high performance computing at Iowa State. Any interested faculty, staff and graduate students are welcome to participate.
If you would like to join HPC Comm, subscribe to the HPC Comm email list.
