Research Computing Mission

The Information Technology Research Computing and Cyberinfrastructure group started with goals of centralizing Information Technology activities at SIU, reducing redundancy, leveraging buying power and having more efficient use of resources through standardization. Our mission is to strengthen campus capabilities in research related activities to meet current and future requests in terms of both technological and organizational aspects. Our goals include advancing contemporary research capabilities by providing: reliable research storage, research and compute bandwidths, scientific visualization tools and process optimization efforts.
