Research Computing is one of seven core units within Information Technology. Its mission is to support research-oriented computing activity as needed by UF faculty and drive the University toward its stated goal of becoming a top-ten public research university.
The High-Performance Computing Center is the group within Research Computing that operates and supports the large-scale computing systems (HiPerGator Supercomputer) and data storage facilities for the benefit of the UF research community.
Funding comes from multiple sources within the University. The funding model distributes the cost of our facilities among several major stakeholders all of whom benefit from a strong and active large-scale computing center.
To facilitate collaboration, Research Computing maintains and coordinates a number of important partnerships.
