In addition to computing resources for research, the CGRB hosts the Advanced Cyberinfrastructure Teaching Facility, or ACTF, providing dedicated high-performance-computing resources for instructional needs. These include:

  • Over 300 CPU cores across 6 high-core-count, high-memory machines
  • A total of over 2 TB of RAM
  • Over 100 TB of networked, high-speed ZFS file space
  • 10GbE network
  • Web-hosting resources
  • Software management for instruction

On the ACTF, learners and instructors explore computation at the big-data end of the spectrum, in topics ranging from Bioinformatics to Data Mining.

To inquire about utilizing the ACTF for your course, or guidance on developing curricula to effectively use such high-performance resources, please contact the trainers.
