HPC & Big-Data

UIC’s first HPC (High-Performance Computing) cluster, Extreme, provides researchers a powerful machine with 3,500 cores, 24.5 Terabytes of memory and 1.25 Petabytes of local raw storage.


The UIC campus network is comprised of 10Gbps fiber optic switched Ethernet links and a Campus Research Network spans the UIC campus with a 40Gbps core.


ACER is planning on increasing the storage size to 2.5 PB through the SABER cluster with options for secure (sensitive data) or regular storage that can be mounted directly on workstations.


ACER staff will consult with researchers at every stage of research including one-on-one consultations, classroom tutorials, workshops, and software resources through strategic partnerships.

ACER@ACCC partners with UIC research community to provide broad-array of data infrastructure and services.

ACER’s mission is to advance scientific research and training at UIC with help of advanced cyberinfrastructure tools and techniques.
