What is the

Research Computing Center

GACRC?

The
RCC, or
Georgia Advanced Computing Resource Center (GACRC, formerly the Research Computing Center
,
) is the result of a
collaboration between EITS (CIO's Office)
collaborative partnership between the Office of the Vice President for Research and the Office of the Vice President for
Research
Information Technology.
The
mission of the RCC is to provide and support research computing and communications resources that enhance the productivity of researchers at UGA, enable UGA researchers to accelerate the rate of new scientific and artistic breakthroughs, enable collaborative research between UGA researchers and their peers at other research institutions, and provide effective access to information sources throughout the world.

 

Who Supports RCC?

  • Tri-level: Software and Services > Research Computing
  • Assign-to Group: RCS
  • Information to Include: Whatever technobabble the client gives us
  • RCC Outages can be reported to NIMS
  • Requests for assistance with specific RCC applications can be submitted via the webform located here:
http://gacrc.uga.edu/help

 

Who Can Take Advantage of the RCC?

Access to the RCC's resources is restricted to UGA faculty and staff who are granted RCC accounts.

 

How Can I Request a RCC Account?

Lab Groups

User accounts are created as part of a "lab group" which has been registered by a Principal Investigator (PI) via the Group Registration Form. Once the group is registered, the PI will receive an email stating that he/she and members of his/her group may request their individual user accounts.

The Group Registration Form is located here:

http://gacrc.uga.edu/accounts
  • NOTE: MyID authentication is required to access this form.

User Accounts

To obtain a user account, fill out and submit the Account Creation Request Form. A list of registered lab groups is on that form. You will be notified via email when the account has been created.

The Account Creation Request Form can be found in the same URL given above for lab groups.

  • NOTE: MyID authentication is required to access this form.

What of Applications Does the RCC Offer?

The applications that the RCC offers can be divided into several large categories:

Bioinformatics

A number of software applications used in bioinformatics research are maintained on the RCC computing hardware, and are supported by the RCC's consulting staff. These include commercial, public-domain, and home-grown applications which cover a diverse array of computational methods.

A complete list of these applications can be found here:

http://www.rcc.uga.edu/applications/bioinformatics/index.html

Computational Chemistry

A number of software applications used in computational Chemistry, Biochemistry, Molecular Modeling, etc, are installed on the RCC computing hardware. These include commercial, public-domain, and home-grown applications.

A complete list of the applications can be found here:

GACRC is administered by UGA’s Enterprise Information Technology Services (EITS).
The Center provides to the UGA research and education community an advanced computing environment comprised of a high-performance computing and networking infrastructure located at the Boyd Data Center, a comprehensive collection of scientific, engineering and business applications, as well as consulting and training services..

Who Can Use GACRC Services?

Access to and use of the computing facilities managed by the Georgia Advanced Computing Resource Center are limited to persons affiliated with the University of Georgia and associated with research projects sponsored by UGA.

How Can I Request an GACRC Account?

GACRC user accounts are managed as part of a "computing lab" group which is registered by a UGA principal investigator (PI) i.e. faculty member.  Users are typically post-docs and graduate students working under the direction of the PI.  The account creation process is twofold:
A UGA faculty member may request a computing lab with us by filling out the following Lab Registration Form
The PI of a computing lab requests user accounts for members of his/her computing lab using the User Accounts Form
