OIT's Supercomputing division provides both user and system support. Supercomputing support is available to:

  • Users of SDSC and XSEDE resources.
  • UCSB faculty and researchers using HPC resources.
  • UCSB students using HPC tools as part of their coursework.

In addition to providing support for accounts at SDSC and XSEDE, we also:

  • Educate users in the available alternatives: the architectures, tools, libraries, and applications that they might use to solve their computational problems.
  • Assist users in designing their HPC applications and in choosing and using the tools to build them.
  • Point you to informational resources of all kinds in your pursuit of the quickest path to solving your problem.
  • Facilitate collaborative research. Let us know what you're considering and we'll discuss how we might share the load.
