Bluemoon

A multi-thousand-core, high-performance computing cluster, modeled after national supercomputing centers, supporting large-scale computation, low-latency networking for MPI workloads, large memory systems, and high performance parallel filesystems.

This general purpose computing cluster can handle a wide range of researcher software and computational needs.

DeepGreen

A new massively parallel cluster composed of over 70 GPUs capable of over 8 petaflops of mixed precision calculations based on the NVIDIA Tesla V100 architecture. Its hybrid design can expedite high-throughput artificial intelligence and machine learning workflows, and its extreme parallelism will forge new and transformative research pipelines.

This project is funded by an award from the National Science Foundation, Major Research Instrumentation. Project will launch March 2019.

#UVMComputes

A project designed to allow anyone with a laptop to help their fellow faculty and students do research by simply pointing their browser at the #UVMComputes web page. The network of participating laptops becomes an on-campus supercomputer!  The goal is to lower the barriers of entry into science for as many people as possible.

UVM is excited to be joining the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation in this adventure. Work on this project began June 2018 and will be available June 2020.
