This collaboration will facilitate multidisciplinary discoveries and support for the university community to help advance research productivity and conduct world-renowned research. Progress in our campus' mission and vision in the area of research depends on a stronger data infrastructure including the analysis and interpretation of large and complex data resources. The Alpine HPC is a supercomputing cluster housed in Boulder and is centrally funded by the Chancellor for CU Anschutz faculty, researchers, staff, and students.
The CU Boulder Research Computing (CURC) team has an established computational infrastructure and is already supporting the Alpine research compute environment. This comprehensive supercomputing environment is for large dataset processing and analysis and is equipped with:
For researchers that need additional compute resources, a buy-in opportunity for more dedicated resources will be made available. In addition, research data storage services are available from the CURC PetaLibrary. Information about PetaLibrary costs and additional options for backing up data can be found at The PetaLibrary webpage on the CU Boulder Research Computing website.
* Please note: Alpine is not a HIPAA compliant system and no secure data should be analyzed or stored on Alpine. For additional information about classifying sensitive university data, visit the CU Office of Information Security's Data Classification webpage.
Join CU Anschutz and CU Boulder Research Computing at 11 a.m. on Thursday, June 8, to celebrate our collaboration at the CU Boulder Center for Innovation & Creativity. Chancellor Don Elliman and Chancellor Phil DiStefano will begin remarks at 11:30 a.m. followed by timed tours of the supercomputer container, snacks and an introduction to high performance computing. Register today.
Complete the following steps to start the process for access to the new HPC system:
Our partnership leverages the expertise of the CU Boulder Research Computing team to deliver a robust HPC environment including support and training. Visit the CU Boulder OIT Research Computing webpage to learn more about additional resources and documentation.
Office hours to discuss high performance computing topics are held by the CU Anschutz HPC Bioinformatics Technical Analyst from 9:30 - 10:30 a.m. every Monday. Join the virtual meeting via Zoom and email email@example.com with topic questions.
In addition, CU Anschutz has partnered with NVIDIA to develop trainings specifically suited for the scientific computing needs of the campus from noon to 1 p.m. every Thursday from May 4 through June 15. Register for one session or the entire series. Additional training opportunities are available from the CURC team - visit their Events and Training webpage including calendar information about Zoom office hour availability for those who are new to using HPC.
CURC has extensive how-to instructions and help documents for using Alpine:
CU Anschutz offers an Alpine HPC Active Users Microsoft Teams site to share HPC resources, successes, and provide peer-to-peer help. Request to join the Teams site. You can also visit the Rocky Mountain Advanced Computing Consortium (RMACC) community portal to learn about frequently asked research computing questions and shared best practices with other HPC Users.
If you have questions about the upcoming availability of the HPC Alpine system or need additional information, contact the CU Anschutz High Performance Computing (HPC) team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
