  • Get Started with HPC

    HPC at UVA is available in two security environments: Rivanna - Standard Security A traditional high performance cluster with job scheduler, large file system, modules, and MPI processing. Please see the ARCS page for how to begin working in Rivanna. Get Started on Rivanna Ivy - High Security A multi-platform, HIPAA-compliant system for secure data that includes dedicated virtual machines (Linux and Windows), Domino Data Lab, and Hadoop/Spark.

  • Scientific Computing

    School of Medicine Research Computing supports SOM and UVa Medical Center researchers who are interested in writing code to address their scientific inquiries. Whether these programming tasks are implemented interactively, in a series of scripts or as an open-source software package, services are available to provide guidance and enable collaborative development. SOMRC has specific expertise in object oriented programming in Matlab, R, and Python. Examples of service areas include: Collaborating on package development Reviewing and debugging code Preparing scripts to automate or expedite tasks Developing web interfaces for interactive data exploration Advising on integration of existing software tools UVA has two local HPC facilities available to researchers: Rivanna and Ivy.
