High-Performance Computing Core Facility

The UC Davis High-Performance Computing Core Facility (HPCCF) is a campus research core facility in the Office of Research specializing in high-performance computing (HPC) systems for research and education.

As part of our mission, we manage high-performance computing services that enable practical innovation at the UC Davis Research Community to enhance the university's competitive advantage.

We manage UC Davis research computing environments that support multiple colleges, departments, and laboratories across the university. As part of our mission, we support a majority of each system, including design, procurement, implementation, maintenance, and administration.

The current vision for the essential capabilities of the UC Davis HPCCF includes the following components:

  • Expertise – to provide high-performance computing support to research that works to advance science and enhance competitive advantage.
  • Value – to bring the right value at the right cost where budget holders understand and support transparent total cost recovery.
  • Service Quality – to address client expectations by service performance defined by metrics.
  • Portfolio Planning – to forecast and meet needs and have the flexibility to satisfy unexpected resource demand and technology breakthroughs.
  • Governance – to ensure strategic and tactical decision-making, resulting in valued HPC capability.
