Welcome to High Performance Computing (HPC) System at Case Western Reserve University
High Performance Computing service at CWRU provides a stable high performance computing environment in support of research at the university.  Services include provisioning account access to our computational resources, assistance in optimizing use of those resources, and providing answers to questions about use of the resources.  We are also available to assist in pre-award activities related to budgeting for use of HPC resources and services and in post-award involvement in research activities. Please contact us at .This website provides more information about the cluster and guidance on installed software to run jobs efficiently. Please acknowledge HPC in your HPC-Assisted research works as showed:
"This work made use of the High Performance Computing Resource in the Core Facility for Advanced Research Computing at Case Western Reserve University."

User Support & Guide
Now, you have HPC account, what's next? The guide "User Support" helps you to get started with running sample jobs in the cluster to get the feel of it. It also provides you links to cater to your specific needs. HPC FAQ tries to resolve not only issues that you encounter while running your jobs but also answers your other HPC-related queries.

We also hold biweekly HPC seminars at Crawford 720 at 11am-12pm. You can see the schedule on this webpage.
