News and events
Did you know that Research Computing offers an affordable home for large research data? Did you also know it is about to get a lot bigger?
Working with partners at Dell, Research Computing is deploying a large-scale research data storage system, offering 4 Petabytes of capacity. That's 4,000 Terabytes - more than twice what was available on the previous system! This project storage will be available as a "network drive" on individual PCs as well as on the Agave supercomputing cluster and the cost will remain $50/TB/year. The new storage is expected to go live later this semester.
ASU Research Computing invites our research community to join our leadership and staff for our first Annual Research Computing Town Hall on Tuesday, February 23, 2021, from 3:00-3:50 pm.
This platform will provide us an opportunity to share the latest news and developments in high performance computing and data storage at ASU. All are welcome to attend!
We encourage you to bring questions and ideas to help shape the future of Research Computing at ASU. If you have questions that you would like to send us ahead of time to address during the RC Town Hall, please email email@example.com.

ASU Research Computing is offering over 20 workshops for the spring 2021 semester. The workshops are tailored to various audiences, from introductory trainings on how to use our cluster to advanced workshops on Python and R. We have something to offer all levels of users and offer a supportive learning environment.
Let us help support your research and educational projects!
A full list of our workshops can be found here.
This workshop will cover the Agave cluster configuration, batch and interactive access, and available software packages. Access has been greatly simplified with Open OnDemand, a browser-based portal to Agave supporting command-line shell, drag and drop file transfer, job submission, and RStudio and Jupyter interfaces. A sample of applications run on the system will demonstrate the variety of computational research Agave supports, including new GPU acceleration capability.
In preparation for the workshop, all attendees are encouraged to obtain an account on Agave if they do not already have one: https://cores.research.asu.edu/research-computing/get-started/create-an-account.
