Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Center Now Available to all UMASS Campuses

Date Posted: Wednesday, January 01, 2014

We are very pleased and excited to announce that all five campuses of the University of Massachusetts−the “consortium within the consortium”−of the Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Center (MGHPCC) now have live access to the Center.  The five UMASS campuses (Amherst, Boston, Dartmouth, Lowell, and Worcester) have been utilizing the resources at the MGHPCC facility for more than six months.

The Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Center (MGHPCC) is a unique initiative by the five campus consortia, consisting of: University of Massachusetts, Boston University, Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Northeastern University.  MGHPCC charter is to deliver a world-class computational infrastructure to the research and academic community, which is indispensable in the increasingly data-rich environment of modern science.  With the increasingly integrated role of computation in basic and applied research, the MGHPCC represents a critical piece of infrastructure that will fuel the innovation economy of the Commonwealth.

The rationale for an UMASS HPC cluster is simple: it’s a cost-effective and powerful resource for the UMASS research community. This UMASS HPC is governed by a research advisory council and driven by an HPC based User Group, which meets monthly to review user needs.
