Private Cluster Maintenance

Computational Resources

Research groups who have procured their own HPC cluster may house it in Cornell’s primary machine room on the 7th floor of Rhodes Hall. CAC’s professional systems staff will provide systems maintenance for your cluster so that you can focus on your research rather than the technology enabling it, i.e., software updates, server and network maintenance, power, cooling, etc.

Many Cornell departments leverage this service including Applied Engineering and Physics, Astronomy, Biological Statistics and Computational Biology, Biomedical Engineering, Chemistry, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Computer Science, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Molecular Biology and Genetics, and Statistical Science.

Our system consultants are available to help faculty architect the optimal cluster, servers, storage, and/or systems software for their application and, if procuring a cluster, to secure favorable pricing at no fee. Cluster installation is a fee-based consulting service. Programming consulting and code improvement consulting are also available as optional services.

Web Hosting

CAC web hosting services are available for research applications. We will develop and maintain your site and integrate the research features you want, such as high-performance compute engines, databases, custom tools, and/or large-scale storage systems. Do it yourself cloud services are also available for researchers who wish to build their own web sites.
