Research Computing Services supports ODU Researcher's needs by providing high performance computing clusters, support for sensitive and regulated date research and storage for research data. These systems are available for use by university researchers and students to advance the university's research goals.

We support multiple High Performance Computing clusters providing both symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) and shared memory computers for parallel programming applications.

In addition, we support several specialized environments support sensitive and regulated data including CUI and HIPAA.

A multi-terabyte storage access network (SAN) is available to provide research activities with secure storage of research data.
