In an effort to advance research and optimize user service, LSU's Center for Computation & Technology (CCT) and Information Technology Services (ITS) have joined forces to create a support structure for high performance computing resources and expertise at LSU. Known as HPC@LSU, it establishes a premium computing environment that advances interdisciplinary research as well as research within individual disciplines, and supports users with the best possible infrastructure to carry out their research.
Through this site, researchers can view the systems and services available to perform their research, open accounts for access to these computational resources, and obtain the customer service and support that they need to successfully and smoothly carry out their projects. By combining efforts, HPC@LSU, coupled with nationwide projects like NSF TeraGrid and statewide projects like LONI, further positions Louisiana as a national leader, not only in deploying the most progressive high-tech infrastructure, but also in advancing it for scientific, engineering, arts, and business applications. HPC@LSU is focused on building upon the current momentum to further strengthen Louisiana's intellectual capital.
