DescriptionGenomics researchers need a lot of computes, often in bursts which makes the traditional HPC condo model a poor fit. Learn about an alternative - a massively shared cluster for genomics research that’s optimized for bursting, and our personalized support model for supporting faculty, students, and staff. Come hear about both the successes and the lessons learned.

At Northwestern, 160 genomics researchers from across the University share a 100-node (2,400 core) cluster for computational research. See how Northwestern balances University goals and finite resources to successfully enable research through orientations, consultations, queue definitions, regular stakeholder meetings, monitoring, office hours and a slack channel!
