High Performance Computing

Computational resources are a critical part of scientific research and engineering programs. These resources play an increasingly important role in preparing students for careers in both commercial and academics fields.

Recent advances in data acquisition, algorithm development, and computer hardware have made High Performance Computing (HPC) fundamentally necessary to remain competitive. The University of Memphis recognizes the importance of local HPC resources for research and education.

Starting in 2006, the University of Memphis has maintained HPC facilities on campus. Since its inception, this facility has enabled research programs spanning such disciplines as bioinformatics, engineering, physics, chemistry, mathematics and more (see our research page for details).

High Performance Computing (HPC) is a key component of Information Technology Services' (ITS) support for the University's mission. Support for HPC is provided through the ITS Research Computing office.
