What We Offer

Facilitation And Consulting

Our most important service in Research Computing is facilitation. Our primary goal is to make accessing and using research computing resources easier for the research community.

Access to HPC

In order to serve the RIT Community with High-Performance Computing (HPC), the Research Computing team manages the SPORC (Scheduled Processing on Research Computing) cluster, which serves as the main computing cluster.

Research Data Storage

Research Computing maintains a Ceph storage cluster that provides network storage for the SPORC cluster. While the Ceph system provides resiliency that allows for disk or host failures, we cannot provide restoration of deleted files.
