The NYU IT High Performance Computing (HPC ) group is now piloting an OpenStack cluster service. The pilot, a collaboration between NYU IT Research Technology and the ViDA project, provides local/private cloud services, enabling NYU researchers to deploy and use fully customized research computing environments. OpenStack eliminates the need to purchase and deploy local departmental servers and enables reproducible research by providing the ability to save and reuse analysis environments.
The Brooklyn Research Cluster is open to all NYU researchers. ViDA members have priority access.
