Research Computing Resources

Research Computing at Syracuse University is a collaborative effort between the campus research community and technology groups from across campus. The technology groups include both distributed information technology teams as well as support from Information Technology Services (ITS) which provides research computing infrastructure resources.

These campus wide resources include:

  • OrangeGrid, a high-throughput computing (HTC) cluster.
  • Zest, a high-performance computing (HPC) cluster.
  • Academic Virtual Hosting Environment (AVHE), a private cloud focused on the unique needs of the research community.
  • Crush, a virtual private cloud for computationally intense research computing needs.
  • SUrge, a growing computing cluster with hundreds of GPUs, supporting GPU enabled applications and allowing development with CUDA and OpenCL.

Within ITS, research computing efforts are led by Interim Vice President and Chief Information Officer, Eric Sedore.
