Resources

Access to computer systems at the MGHPCC is coordinated by the research groups and research computing groups that operate them. You can use the links below to learn more about available computing, storage, and networking resources at the MGHPCC, and how to gain access. If you are not at one of the five founding universities there are several options available for using resources at the MGHPCC.  If you would like to learn more, or have other questions not answered by the web site, you can contact us at  research@mghpcc.org.

University Partners

 partners-icon-bu The Research Computing Services group (RCS) at Boston University administers advanced, multiprocessor supercomputing systems for research computing. These systems are available to all University faculty, their students, and their collaborators for research and for educational use in courses related to computational science.
