What is “ICS-ACI?”
The Institute for CyberScience Advanced CyberInfrastructure (ICS-ACI) is our high-performance computing (HPC) infrastructure. The name also refers to the services associated with this system. ICS-ACI provides secure, high-quality advanced computing and storage resources to the Penn State research community.
What does ICS-ACI do?
ICS-ACI contributes to the ICS mission by providing researchers with the hardware, software, and technical expertise needed to solve problems of scientific and societal importance.
ICS-ACI provides a variety of services, including operations, backup, technical consulting, and training. It offers over 1000 servers with more than 23,000 processing cores, 6 Petabytes (PB) of disk parallel file storage, 12 PB of tape archive storage, high-speed Ethernet and Infiniband interconnects, and a large software stack. ICS-ACI is also compliant with specific NIH and NIST security controls.
- ICS-ACI policies;
- ICS accounts and 2FA; and
- “Slim” access accounts (for researchers not at Penn State).
