Resources

We offer access to a high-performance computer cluster and cutting-edge lab facilities, equipment, and collaboration spaces.

High-Performance Computing and Software

As a part of Boston University, the center has access to the Shared Computing Cluster (SCC)As of 2020, 240,000 CPU cores on a Linux cluster are available as shared or buy-in resources, with six petabytes of storage. And with two pairs of 10 Gigabit Ethernet network connections between the SCC and BU’s campuses, we have ample data transfer speed. Center researchers have access to a wide range of software and associated tools for visualization, analysis, and mapping of remote sensing data.
