Providing Computational Resources

Wayne State University has developed a high performance Grid enabled computing system that houses and manages research related projects. The Grid handles projects requiring high speed computation, parallel and distributed computing, data management, and computationally intensive applications. This enables users to utilize numerous processors in different systems simultaneously. These systems are joined by high speed networks allowing them to function effectively as a single unit. The Grid currently has 427 nodes and the combined processing power of 8,212 cores, with over 56TB of RAM and 1.2PB of disk space. The system is open to any researcher at WSU.

Providing Tutorials and Support

We provide comprehensive H.P.C. training through tutorials covering topics including getting started on the Grid, utilizing Grid resources, and using advanced scientific software in the Grid environment. Tutorials can be found here: Tutorials

Purchasing and Hosting Equipment

We facilitate the process of purchasing equipment for integration in the Grid. Consulting, grant requests, pricing and vendor negotiation, and implementation are all assisted with free of charge. More information can be found here: Purchasing

Providing XSEDE Support

Wayne State is an XSEDE Champion Institution. XSEDE is an NSF-funded virtual organization that integrates and coordinates the sharing of advanced digital services - including supercomputers - with researchers nationally to support science. Grid users may be assisted in applying for access to computing resources available on XSEDE partner clusters. More information can be found here: XSEDE


HPC Services mission is to provide WSU faculty, staff, students and affiliates with high performance computing resources/consulting for research and teaching in a high quality and responsive manner.
