Storrs HPC Cluster Usage Report

In 2011 the UConn School of Engineering, in collaboration with the Booth Engineering Center for Advanced Technology (BECAT), invested in the largest High Performance Computing (HPC) cluster on the Storrs campus.  This cluster has received continual improvement in both operational efficiency and resources expansion.  The cluster is serving as the catalyst for research in computationally intensive disciplines related to the university’s ambitious initiatives, including the UConn Technology Park, Next Generation Connecticut, and Bioscience Connecticut.  Over the three years of the cluster’s operation, its usage has increased at a rapid pace.  BECAT has published the following graphs which highlight the cluster’s usage during the Fall of 2011 through the Fall of 2013.
