What is the MGHPCC?

  • A research computing and data center supporting the growing research computing needs of five of the most research-intensive universities in Massachusetts: Boston University, Harvard University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Northeastern University, and the University of Massachusetts. High Performance Computing (HPC) deploys many computers working closely together to solve computationally complex problems that are too large or would take too long for standalone desktop or server computers.
  • A historic collaboration among the five MGHPCC universities, state government and private industry – the most significant collaboration among government, industry and public and private universities in the history of the Commonwealth. Among the MGHPCC universities, a research seed program administered by the MGHPCC Consortium, and recently-awarded collaborative research and education grants from the US National Science Foundation and the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center are building a foundation for inter-university collaboration.
  • A partnership with Holyoke, the Pioneer Valley, and the Commonwealth. The MGHPCC has worked closely with the Holyoke Innovation District Task Force to leverage the benefits of the MGHPCC facility’s location in Holyoke, and is partnering with K-12 public schools and community colleges on new educational and workforce development initiatives.
