High Performance Computing


The Center for Research Computing provides support for High Performance Computing (HPC) at Yale University on shared Linux clusters. We work with faculty and research groups across a variety of disciplines to help them take advantage of these advanced computational resources. 

If groups are interested in visiting the HPC data center at Yale’s West Campus, guided tours can be arranged by emailing research.computing@yale.edu.

Who Can Use It?: 

Any Yale faculty member in the social, life, or physical sciences, engineering, or the Yale School of Medicine is entitled to a Principal Investigator group account on YCRC’s HPC resources, at no charge.

Other university faculty may apply for an account subject to YCRC approval. 

How Much Does It Cost?: 

There is no charge for using these clusters, however faculty can purchase dedicated compute nodes and/or storage for their research needs.   For more information on purchasing dedicated hardware contact research.computing@yale.edu

How Do I Get It?: 

Please complete the Access Request Form.  For dedicated hardware, please contact research.computing@yale.edu
