New HPC Documentation Website!

New documentation is coming that will replace our current Confluence website (the one you're viewing right now). We will be sending an announcement on when the site will go live. Interested in taking a peek? Check out this page for the beta version. Note: the URL is likely to change.

New GPUs on Ocelote!

We have recently added 22 new P100 GPUs to Ocelote. Need to request multiple GPUs on a node and you're finding Puma queue times too slow? You can now request two GPUs per node on Ocelote using --gres=gpu:2.

About Us

UArizona HPC systems are funded through the Office of Research Discovery and Innovation (ORDI), Chief Information Officer (CIO), and University Information Technology Services (UITS).

All UArizona HPC systems are available to all UArizona researchers (faculty, staff, undergrad and grad students, postdocs and DCC's) at no cost. Each research group is provided 7,000 CPU-hours per month on ElGato, 100,000 CPU-hours per month on Ocelote (increased from 70,000 in March 2024), and an astonishing 150,000 CPU-hours per month on Puma (increased from 100,000 hours in March 2024).

Access to these systems is through a linux command line interface which may be unfamiliar to the new user.  This section has the basic knowledge that will introduce you to the resources and provides information on account registration, system access, how to run jobs, and how to request help.
