Research Cyberinfrastructure (RCi)

The Research Cyberinfrastructure (RCi) team at South ֱ State University, offers support for high-performance computing (HPC) and high-velocity research data transfer services within the South ֱ Board of Regents (SDBOR). RCi manages the largest HPC platform within the SDBOR system for use in research and education throughout the state. New users of the SDBOR research community and existing users with new projects may obtain access to the research computing resources by following the link to . Existing users who have already completed the project onboarding process and need help with their project are asked to complete a

Reseach computing cyberinfrastructure
  • HPC parallel computing platform provides a wide range of hardware accelerators and scientific software packages serving engineering and life sciences research.
  • Storage systems include several high-speed parallel file systems and multi-tiered storage platforms.

"Innovator" HPC cluster

The next-generation cluster has become the major tool for the computational research available for our scientific and engineering community. This cluster boasts the most advanced CPU architectures for parallel computing and acceleration of machine learning applications. The computational tasks of AI researchers and simulations gain a significant boost with the latest generation of the GPU hardware. The Innovator cluster addresses the most pressing demand for fast storage and access to a huge volume of scientific data.

Hardware acceleration resources

Time pressure image

Besides commonly found parallel computing with processes and threads, HPC cyberinfrastructure offers GPU and CPU-centric performance accelerators. The latest GPU technology is available both within the cluster environment and stand-alone servers. Differently from GPU, the CPU acceleration takes advantage of the latest generation processors. It employs the combination of the smart compilers on the specific CPU platform, both within the cluster and stand-alone parallel processing servers. Please, reach out to our team for more information on performance acceleration of your computational pipeline.

Data Storage Services

Storage and data flow planning solution services are available to enable researchers to store and share data securely in a collaborative environment.
