The Helium cluster provides high throughput or high performance computing which utilizes multiple processors to perform concurrent jobs in parallel. These resources can help significantly speed up scientific computations. ITS is currently developing a suite of services to meet the computational needs of the research community. At present the primary focus is on the Helium compute cluster.
The system is a collaboration between a number of research groups and ITS.
