External HPC Resources Available to Researchers at WSU
Beocat is a High-Performance Computing (HPC) cluster at Kansas State University run by the Institute for Computational Research.Access is available to any educational researcher in the state of Kansas (and their colaborators) without cost. Priority access is given to those researchers who have contributed resources.
The Open Science Grid (OSG) is a national, distributed computing partnership for data-intensive research. Sharing is a core principle of the OSG. Over 100 million CPU hours delivered on the OSG in the past year were opportunistic: they would have remained on but idle if it wasn't for the OSG.
The Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) is a single virtual system that scientists can use to interactively share computing resources, data and expertise. Contact the WSU Campus Champion to gain access to XSEDE resources via HPCAdmin@wichita.edu.
The National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) provides High Performance Computing and Storage facilities and support for research sponsored by, and of interest to, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science (SC). NERSC has the unique programmatic role of supporting all six Office of Science program offices: Advanced Scientific Computing Research, Basic Energy Sciences, Biological and Environmental Research, Fusion Energy Sciences, High Energy Physics, and Nuclear Physics.Scientists who have been awarded research funding by any of the offices are eligible to apply for an allocation of NERSC time. Additional awards may be given to non-DOE funded project teams whose research is aligned with the Office of Science's mission. Allocations of time and storage are made by DOE.
DoD HPC Modernization Program
New HPCMP Systems at Army Research Laboratory Supercomputer Resource Center to Provide 15 petaFLOPS of Computing Power to Address Data-Intensive Physics, AI, and ML Applications for DoD Users
The Department of Defense (DoD) High Performance Computing Modernization Program (HPCMP) completed its fiscal year 2020 investment in supercomputing capability supporting the DoD Science and Technology (S&T), Test and Evaluation (T&E), and Acquisition Engineering communities.
BIOWULF High Performace Computing at the National Institute for Health (NIH): The NIH HPC group plans, manages and supports high-performance computing systems specifically for the intramural NIH community. These systems include Biowulf, a 105,000+ processor Linux cluster; Helix, an interactive system for file transfer and management, Sciware, a set of applications for desktops, and Helixweb, which provides a number of web-based scientific tools. We provide access to a wide range of computational applications for genomics, molecular and structural biology, mathematical and graphical analysis, image analysis, and other scientific fields.
