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.

High-performance computing

High-powered computing resources for big datasets.

Research Data Facility

When you’re project won’t fit on, or shouldn’t be on, an external hard disk.

High-speed data transfer

When your project is too big for a regular FTP transfer. Specialized, NSF-funded infrastructure for moving large-scale data sets

Visualization

Virtual Machines

  • Commercial options currently available through Amazon AWS and Google Cloud Computing. The CRC can help you to get a quote and even to get started. Google currently offers $300 in credits to new users.
  • Owl Research Infrastructure Open Nebula (ORION) VM Pool on Rice Campus. Contact the CRC for more information via ticket.

National Resources

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
