The Research Computing Center at Florida State University enables research and education by maintaining a diverse campus cyberinfrastructure and by providing training opportunities and dedicated consulting.

What we Do


Our HPC Cluster provides over 264 TFLOPS of compute to researchers at FSU. We also provide an Interactive Cluster (Spear), and a large managed software library.


We provide a high I/O parallel file system, GPFS, for use on the HPC and Spear. We also provide a general-purpose archival storage system for long term storing, sharing, and data compliance


In addition to comprehensive support for our core services, we also provide research consulting and assistance, and we also host many outreach and training events.
