Abstract

The Coastal Carolina University Cyberinfrastructure Project, or CI Project, is rapidly becoming the centralized research computing system for the university. The CI Project provides facilities for data storage, High Performance Computing (HPC), application licensing, software development, and related activities. Ultimately, the CI Project provides resources for 21st century research and education activities at CCU, while facilitating information sharing and collaboration with colleagues worldwide.

In this presentation, I will give a brief history of the CI Project, discuss its capabilities, and explain how services can be obtained for both CCU users and collaborating external scientists. Topics will include HPC resources (cluster computing) for running simulations, storage capabilities for maintaining agency-required research data sets, and the cloud computing model used to access the system.
