Welcome to High Performance Computing Cluster (HPCC) 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. This website provides more information about the cluster and guidance on installed software to run jobs efficiently.

Facts about xCAT
xCAT was developed by IBM to manage clusters of IBM machines. xCAT, now an open source code, includes Red Hat and SUSE Linux as the provisioned OS. That allowed us to use xCAT in the HPCC cluster using RHEL 6.
