The SRDC Platform supports data storage, management, and computation designed for compute-intensive research on large and sensitive data. SRDC features dedicated infrastructure, housed in the secure campus data center, as well as personnel to support research and enforce the necessary privacy and security policies and procedures.
Technology & Equipment¶
- High performance computing, accessible to researchers under their Faculty Computing Allowance. Researchers may purchase additional HPC nodes to add to the system.
- Windows and Linux virtual machines, accessible to researchers under their Faculty Computing Allowance. Researchers may purchase additional virtual machine hardware to add to the system.
- A dedicated, large-scale, and high performance storage system. Researchers may purchase additional storage to add to the system.
Platform Support & Research Facilitation¶
The SRDC is managed by system administrators and SRDC consultants, who monitor the OS and software, review security requirements and compliance, identify computational workflows, and help onboard new users. The Information Security Office works closely with SRDC staff to ensure security through monitoring and intrusion detection.
