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-powered computing resources for big datasets.
When your project won’t fit on, or shouldn’t be on, an external hard disk.
When your project is too big for a regular FTP transfer. Specialized, NSF-funded infrastructure for moving large-scale data sets
