The Center for Research Computing (CRC) manages shared computational clusters for a wide range of research projects affiliated with Rice University and the Texas Medical Center.
The CRC administers and maintains infrastructure in four core service areas: Shared Computing Clusters, the Research Data Facility, the High-Speed Data Transfer infrastructure, High-Performance Visualization, and Virtual Machines. While these services often fit together, each provides unique capabilities designed to accommodate specific research tasks.
This page gives an overview of these services, with links to more detailed information on each of them. If you have any questions or find that the services below do not meet your research computing needs, contact our CRC facilitators via ticket.
Part of the mission of the CRC is to serve as an onramp for our researchers to scale their problems up to the minimum size requirements at big national supercomputing resources. One such national resource is the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment or XSEDE
