Research Computing

Consulting, server hosting, system administration, and data storage are available to support computationally intensive research computing. A centrally managed, high-density data center provides safe, secure, and reliable server hosting and a 10 GB network connection to the campus backbone. Access to research services and equipment is aided by a web based facilities management system.

Nero is a Big Data Computing Platform specifically designed for High-Risk Data developed in collaboration with the School of Medicine (SOM) and Stanford Research Computing Center (SRCC). Nero is PHI compliant and operated by the Stanford Research Computing Center.

Oak is a High-Performance Computing (HPC) storage system available to research groups and projects at Stanford.

For Stanford researchers who want to operate their equipment in a secure, centrally-managed data center.

Supporting researchers for reproducible scientific software

The Shared Scientific Facilities Management (SSFM) system is a web application that provides Stanford researchers and outside institutions a centralized marketplace and billing system for scientific services and equipment available on campus. 

FarmShare, Stanford's shared computing environment, provides Linux facilities for general and research computing to anyone with a full-service SUNet ID.  There are three environments available, each supporting specific types of shared computing, from general purpose computing tasks to long-running, compute-intensive jobs.

The Stanford Research Computing Center (SRCC) is a joint effort of the Dean of Research and University IT to build and support a comprehensive program to advance computational research at Stanford.
