Virtually every scientific and engineering breakthrough today relies on computation, as “in silico” experimentation and data analytics have become a powerful new tool for knowledge discovery, alongside theory, physical experimentation and observation. The Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Center (MGHPCC) provides state of the art infrastructure for computationally intensive research that is indispensable in the increasingly sensor and data-rich environments of modern science and engineering. Computers at the MGHPCC run millions of virtual experiments every month, supporting thousands of researchers in Massachusetts and around the world.
The MGHPCC operates as a joint venture between Boston University, Harvard University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Northeastern University, and the University of Massachusetts. It is open for use by any research organization.
