Turning CPU-Cycles Into Science

CHPC logo

The Center for High-Performance Computing (CHPC) provides the resources and expertise to tackle any computationally-intense research project undertaken by the Washington University research community. Located in multiple Tier 4 data centers at the medical school, the CHPC offers users access to more than 2,500 computing cores, 17TB of memory and nearly 400 TFLOPs of computing power as well as high-speed networking, bulk storage and technical support. Our service is free to members of contributing departments at the medical school and Danforth Campus. We exist to facilitate the production of science.

Since our inception in 2010, we have processed ~10 million research jobs and counting. 

The graphic below shows the current CHPC use, the top three users and the number of jobs running/queued in real time.
