Advanced Research Computing Center (ARCC)

A division of The Office of Research and Economic Development

Research and High Performance Computing at UW

High performance computing (HPC) plays an increasingly critical role in all areas of research. Complex phenomena can be examined, and systems optimized in a virtual research lab through modeling and simulation. Visualization and data-mining tools enable the understanding of various types of data sets. UW researchers, students and their collaborators have access to world-class computational resources, including the NCAR-Wyoming Supercomputing Center (NWSC), UW's Advanced Research Computing Center (ARCC), and the School of Energy Resources Visualization Center. The Information Technology Research Support Team’s purpose is to support and lead the University of Wyoming faculty, staff and students in using advanced computing to enhance their science and/or engineering research.

The ARCC's primary mission is to facilitate the research of UW faculty, researchers, staff and students by integrating compute resources (software and hardware), networking, data storage, information management, and human resources in an approachable and adaptable manner.


ARCC Announcements

Delayed Software Installs on Teton
Currently, some new software installations on Teton are taking up to 2 weeks to finish. This is due to a backlog of software requests that is being addressed one request at a time. We are in the process of searching for another employee to dedicate time to the installation and management of software on Teton to mitigate the backlog and speed up software requests. We apologize for the inconvenience that our users are experiencing at this time and are working to address this issue. 

All Mount Moran nodes have been repositioned within the Teton HPC Cluster. The login nodes and Globus nodes for Mount Moran will be available to access Bighorn storage until the end of 2018. Bighorn storage can also be accessed from Teton login nodes, but as a read-only filesystem to encourage the movement of data from Bighorn to the new Teton storage.

ARCC has become aware that significant datacenter power system work will be performed on Saturday, June 8th and may last the entire day.  In an effort to avoid catastrophic failure ARCC has decided to place Teton and the petaLibrary into maintenance mode during this work. Teton and the petaLibrary will not be available during this timeframe. Any jobs that will extend into this maintenance window will be queued and on hold until the maintenance is complete.

We apologize for any inconvenience, but do feel it is the best course of action. Barring any unforeseen circumstances Teton and the petaLibrary should be back up the night of the 8th.


Resources and Services

The major ARCC resources available across UW are: Teton (HPC cluster), the petaLibrary (research storage), Linux desktop support, and HPC consulting. Other services available by arrangement.

These resources are supported on a best effort basis by the ARCC staff with the following service availability targets:

  • Teton - 99% uptime (not counting scheduled outages)
  • PetaLibrary - 99.99% uptime
  • Linux desktop support - best effort, business hours only
  • HPC consulting - business hours only

Access to/help with these resources can requested here: ARCC Access Request Forms. For further information, see ARCC Resources.
