At a cost of $2.4 million and stored in the Roosevelt Road building, the computing cluster features 22,000 gigabytes of RAM and 1 petabyte of disk storage on 3,000 processors. Such computing capability provides the mechanisms and secure environment for researchers to store and complete research involving ‘big data’ and/or requiring intensive computer power, both which are very attractive to students, faculty, and researchers. Says Mitra Duta, UIC Vice Chancellor for Research, “With the arrival of a high performance computing cluster on campus, UIC has significantly expanded research computing capabilities in many areas, including . . . student training in cluster and cloud-based computing, making our graduates more attractive — and boosted our competitiveness among other universities.” For further information see the UIC News 2/4/2104 article.
