High Performance Computing
UIC’s first and currently in-production 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, of which 275 Terabytes is raw fast scratch storage. Extreme supports more than 150 researchers across 25 different research groups from 5 colleges. As the result of unprecedented collaboration across several stakeholders, Extreme is built on partnership model where multiple departments and colleges invested to allow their affiliated faculty to use this resource. Extreme is housed in the Roosevelt Road Building (RRB) Data Center with 24/7/365 video surveillance, dedicated power supply, backup power, cooling and fire suppression systems.
