High Performance Computing
Stony Brook University offers researchers several different options depending on needs.
High Performance Computing Clusters
Stony Brook University researchers may access the services provided by the following two HPC clusters:
LI-red is a computational cluster using top-of-the-line components from Cray, IBM, Intel, Mellanox and other technology partners. It is intended for members of the campus community, as well as industrial partners, and is located in the Institute for Advanced Computational Science's (IACS) server room.
SeaWulf is a computational cluster using top of the line components from Penguin, DDN, Intel, Nvidia, Mellanox and numerous other technology partners. It is intended for members of the campus community, as well as industrial partners, and is located in the Computing Center.
Stony Brook offers researchers high-capacity, high-speed connections to the Internet as a member of NYSERNet and Internet2.
XSEDE is a single virtual system that scientists can use to interactively share computing resources, data and expertise. People around the world use these resources and services — things like supercomputers, collections of data and new tools — to improve our planet.
Brookhaven National Lab
Brookhaven National Lab acts as an extension of Stony Brook University for faculty as another service provider.
Institute for Advanced Computational Science (IACS)
The mission of the IACS is to make sustained advances in the fundamental techniques of computation and in high-impact applications with a vision that by 2017, it will be an internationally-recognized institute having vibrant multidisciplinary research and education programs with demonstrated economic benefit to New York State. Including students and staff. the IACS aims to grow close to 100 people by 2018. There are presently 10 faculty spanning chemistry, materials by design, condensed matter, astrophysics, atmospheric science, nano-science, sociology, applied mathematics, and computer science. Another approximate 20 faculty are affiliated with the institute from diverse departments.
Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR)
The Office of the Vice President for Research helps strategically position the University to be successful in attracting external support for research from federal and other government sources, industry, private foundations, philanthropy, and through partnerships with allied organizations such as Brookhaven National Lab, Cold Spring Harbor, and others. It facilitates the process of applying for grants and contracts and manages awards to assure that research is carried out successfully and that the requirements of sponsoring agencies are fulfilled. It also provides technology tools to disseminate information, facilitate collaboration, and streamline research administration.
Stony Brook Libraries are known for a wide-range of print and digital resources and world-renowned special collections. The Stony Brook Libraries belong to the Association of Research Libraries (ARL), with a Health Sciences Center Library that is a member of the Association of Academic Health Sciences Libraries. The Libraries’ collection exceed 2 million volumes, including eBooks, print and electronic holdings of scholarly journal subscriptions, microforms, music recordings, and a sizable map collection.The University’s Libraries stand as the largest academic research library on Long Island, serving as a resource in the local community, state-wide, and nationally through the National Network of the National Libraries of Medicine.
There are no additional resources available for this service.
