BeoShock High Performance Computing 

Wichita State University's high-performance computing (HPC) cluster is here to help researchers, instructors and staff who have compute-intensive jobs to process. The research computing cluster is named “BeoShock” after “Beowulf” cluster and Shockers.

Beowulf is a type of computing cluster. The cluster has four GPUs (Graphics Processing Units) and 720 CPU (Central Processing Unit) “cores.” As a comparison, most end-user computing devices have one CPU having between one and eight total “cores.”

The cluster is available to all WSU constituents, and those outside of WSU who are KBOR constituents.
