The MIT research computing project is an Institute wide focal point for strategic infrastructure that enables and facilitates research computing, especially at scale.
These web pages provide information on who is involved in this activity, what services are available and how to find out more about items of interest.
Motivation
Today MIT operates three shared research computing locations around Massachusetts. They are designed to support a continually evolving and vibrant ecosystem of research computing activities at MIT.

The research computing project (a) provides strategic focus for central services and facilities within MIT designed to support and boost the existing ecosystem, and (b) works to enable and leverage MIT participation in emerging research computing infrastructure and collaborations with the broader Massachusetts and New England region.

Sponsorship
Within MIT the Vice President of Research office provides sponsorship for core research computing project activities.
The research computing project spans many areas of MIT and involves active support and contributions from the Provost office and Executive Vice President offices, including MIT IS&T, the MIT Office of Major Agreements, the Office of the Vice President for Finance, the Department of Facilities and the Office of Sponsored Programs.
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts, EMC and Cisco were contributors to the construction of the MGHPCC facility.
