Resources Available Through RCC

The Research Computing and Cyberinfrastructure (RCC) group at SIU is associated with several academic and professional organizations. These connections allow us to access experts and information beyond our campus, and exchange ideas, information, and resources with RCC groups around the world. Our gateway to these advanced tools and resources is (XSEDE) the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment. XSEDE is the most advanced, powerful, and robust collection of integrated digital resources and services in the world.

The Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) is a single, virtual system that scientists use to share computing resources, data, and expertise. People around the world use these resources and services—things like supercomputers, data collections, and new tools—to improve our planet. XSEDE is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), and led by the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. It supports 16 supercomputers and high-end visualization and data analysis resources across the country.
