UW Students Invest in Research Computing

UW students have strengthened their ability to do research computing at the UW by investing in High Performance Computing (HPC) resources and forming a new HPC club. The Student Technology Fee Committee purchased capacity in Hyak, the University’s shared HPC cluster, guaranteeing access to over 600,000 compute hours per month and one-third of a petabyte of data storage. The new club will promote best practices, advocate for student needs and help to shape the UW’s HPC offerings.
