Research Computing

Center faculty have played a leading role in establishing Research Computing at Syracuse University. Crush, a 25,000 core virtual private cloud for computationally intense research computing needs played a key role in the first detection of gravitational waves by Advanced LIGO. The Center’s long-standing collaboration with the HTCondor team and the Open Science Grid led to the creation of OrangeGrid, a 14,000 core High Throughput Computing cluster that is available for large-scale data-analysis work.

Additional NSF funding that the Center has collaborated with Syracuse University Information Technology Services to secure include funding for a full-time campus cyberinfrastructure engineer, an open-source project office, SUrge, a computing cluster with over 250 GPUs, and upgrades to the campus network backbone to support research computing.
