High Performance Computing

At Dartmouth, Research Computing offers High Performance Computing (HPC) to the entire research community, regardless of their school or department. It is a combination of powerful computer systems, software, and algorithms to solve complex scientific, engineering, and data-intensive problems that require significant computational resources. Our HPC systems consist of multiple interconnected servers or nodes, each with high-performance processors, large amounts of memory, high-speed network connections, and data storage.

The main goal of HPC is to provide processing power and data storage that far exceeds what can be achieved on a single computer or server. By leveraging the power of high-throughput, parallel processing and distributed computing, HPC systems can perform calculations and simulations faster and more efficiently, reducing the time required for scientific discovery and innovation.

Research Computing offers a variety of HPC services, on premise and in the cloud.

Research Data Storage

Research Computing offers multiple solutions for your research data storage needs. Those include general purpose (DartFS), sensitive data (HIPAA, PHI/PII, FERPA, etc.) storage and compute (Granite), cloud data storage (GCP, AWS), databases (RC-DB), and bespoke solutions.

- DartFS - General purpose, HPC attached, research data storage:
- Granite - secure data storage and compute:
- RC-DB - research database:
- Cloud services -
