PSC to Host WVU Cluster

PSC to Host WVU Cluster

Oct. 10, 2017

A three-year National Science Foundation grant totaling nearly $1 million will let West Virginia University (WVU) develop its next-generation high-performance computing cluster to advance research in an array of fields, from drug delivery to genomics and astrophysics.

PSC will host and operate the cluster at its machine room in Monroeville, Pa. PSC will provide ongoing support, including hardware troubleshooting, on-site technical support and managing WVU’s network connection with the cluster.

The design and implementation of the new computing cluster will be funded by a $990,000 NSF Major Research Instrumentation Program (MRI) grant awarded to a group of 22 faculty and led by Blake Mertz of WVU’s C. Eugene Bennett Department of Chemistry. Co-investigators on this project include faculty at the WVU Blanchette Rockefeller Neurosciences Institute and the departments of Biology, Physics and Astronomy, and Mathematics, as well as the WVU Center for Gravitational Waves and Cosmology. The latter is part of the LIGO gravity wave project, three of whose leaders won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics.
