Faculty of Arts & Sciences Research Computing
Research Computing at Harvard is an enterprise that continues to reflect the University's decentralized heritage, the evolution of research-computing infrastructure and funding opportunities, and the strategic development of its central information-technology organization, Harvard University Information Technology (HUIT) and its University Research Computing team.
Starting in 2007, FAS began consolidating and centralizing research-computing resources within the Division of Sciences and soon began expanding across the School as faculty in the social sciences and humanities began to use advanced computing in their research. The organization came to be called FAS Research Computing and, as more and more faculty across Harvard came to it for support, it extended its services beyond FAS, increasingly in collaboration with HUIT. With HUIT now developing an array of University-wide services and platforms to support faculty beyond FAS, FAS has the opportunity to strategically redefine what resources and services it will continue to support for the Arts & Sciences at Harvard and to broaden the base of users across the School who are advancing their research through computing.
In this context, FAS Research Computing continues to evolve, to expand its offerings, and to support research faculty across the School and their collaborators around the world. It has earned a reputation for building partnerships to accelerate research and collaboration. The Director of FAS RC will continue this legacy.
FAS' research computing team directly engages with researchers through help requests, office hours, training, and in-depth consultations. FAS resources include a Top500.org high-performance computing cluster, virtual machines, storage, databases, instrumentation core facility workstations, and other development platforms. FAS Research Computing has numerous other successful collaborations, including building the MGHPCC (http://www.mghpcc.org/) in Holyoke, MA with leading partner universities. With these and other institutions, FAS launched the NSF-funded NESE project (http://nese.mghpcc.org), which creates a regional cloud storage repository.
