Computational Facilities

Steward has access to world-class high-performance computing facilities.  Within the department there is a 100-processor Beowulf cluster for general use.  Additionally, the University of Arizona houses two SGI supercomputers, a shared-memory SGI Altix with 768 cores, and a distributed-memory SGI Ice with 2748 cores; both are open for use by Steward personnel.  UofA also has an immersive 3-D visualization room called AZLive.
