Research Computing Support

The ITSG will collaborate with you to create an environment that supports your research computing needs.

Terminal Login Nodes:  A set of 10 Ubuntu servers providing terminal logins supporting short and interactive jobs are available to affiliated faculty, instructors, and graduate students. To connect, SSH to linux.coecis.cornell.edu using Cornell NetID and password as shown below,  replacing <netid> with your NetID.

ssh <netid>@linux.coecis.cornell.edu

Timeshared GPU cluster with SLURM ‘Graphite”:  Research groups can purchase a node to join this GPU pool.  All participating member nodes are available for use by the member community; however, an individual group’s jobs have immediate preemptive priority reclaiming their node to their priority (private) queue as needed if in use by others.

Timeshared CPU Cluster with CONDOR “Magma”: Research groups can purchase a node to join this CPU pool.  All participating member nodes are available for use by the member community; however, an individual group’s jobs have immediate preemptive priority reclaiming their node to their priority (private) queue as needed if in use by others.

Data Storage Options: Cornell provides a number of solutions for the storage of research data listed below.  Please contact the ITSG for assistance in determining which option is right for your needs.

Server Configuration & Hosting: The ITSG can assist you in designing, procuring, and configuring compute cluster and servers for both large and small jobs. Configurations span many options for power, disk space, and memory used for a variety of tasks including:

  • Numerical Intensive Processing
  • GPU Computing
  • Deep Learning
  • Scientific and Engineering Simulation
  • LoRaWAN
  • Internet of Things

GitHub & Cloud Services  Cornell provides a number of cloud services under its “Cloudification” initiative.  Please contact the ITSG for assistance in determining which option is right for your needs.

Data Security Plans: If your research involves sharing data with an entity outside Cornell, you may be asked engage in a Data Use Agreement with that entity.  If you have need of a Data Security Plan and haven’t developed one before, we can assist you in creating one.
