High-Performance Computing Center (HPCC)

The TTU High-Performance Computing Center (HPCC) provides consulting and assistance to campus researchers with experimental 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. HPCC serves as a liaison between various teams that are engaged in research. We work to support, configure and port applications to HPCC resources.

The High-Performance Computing Center's (HPCC) hardware is distributed between two primary locations. The main production server, Hrothgar, along with its associated storage systems and several smaller resources are located on campus in the Experimental Sciences Building. Other clusters are located off-campus. Public nodes are available to any TTU researcher. Private nodes are owned by individual researchers and administered by HPCC. Antaeus private nodes are available for public non-priority use. Visit our website at http://www.hpcc.ttu.edu for more information on our department.
