TTU HPCC Mission and Resources

Texas Tech University's High Performance Computing Center (HPCC) was established in 1999 to promote research and teaching on campus through integrating leading-edge high performance computing and visualization for the faculty, staff and students of Texas Tech University.

The TTU HPCC supports research computing and storage and network transfers directly related to the use of the high speed equipment that we operate. These resources are designed to provide a natural stepping stone between capabilities available to researchers on their individual desktop, laptop and portable resources and those of highly competitive national and international-scale supercomputing resources.

The HPCC operates a help desk that provides consulting and assistance to campus researchers with advanced computational software and/or hardware needs. We also provide training in parallel and grid computing as used at the facility, and administration for local high performance systems.

The HPCC staff serves as a liaison between various campus teams that are engaged in research. We work to support, configure and help users to port and optimize applications to make effective use of HPCC resources.

The High Performance Computing Center's (HPCC) hardware is distributed between two primary locations, the Experimental Sciences Building on campus, and Reese Center off campus. For more information, please read HPCC facilities.
