ICS-ACI

Institute for CyberScience Advanced CyberInfrastructure

What is “ICS-ACI?”

Since February 2014, the Institute for CyberScience has operated the Lion-X clusters, including Hammer; and, as of July 1st, 2014, the staff of the former RCC joined ICS. ICS-ACI or Institute for CyberScience Advanced CyberInfrastructure refers to ICS’s high-performance computing service and infrastructure. In addition to maintaining the Lion-X systems, we have also launched ACI-b, our new batch-processing cluster, and ACI-i, an interactive cluster like Hammer.

What does ICS-ACI do?

ICS-ACI provides high-quality, advanced computing and storage for researchers in addition to a variety of services, including operations, backup, technical consulting, and training. It currently operates over 16,000 processing cores, 2.5 Petabytes of parallel file storage, high-speed interconnects, and a large software stack supporting all aspects of research.
