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.

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.
