The IBEST Computational Resources Core (CRC) serves as the computational backbone for a variety of disciplines at the University of Idaho. It provides investigators with state of the art high performance computing and large data storage capacity for use in analyzing and managing large volumes of research data. Users of the core run jobs that may use hundreds of processors in parallel or large memory allocations and may run require weeks to complete. The CRC is explicitly designed to manage the complex computational and storage requirements for U of I researchers and core facilities with very high data reliability and availability.
