As a part of Academic ITS, Advanced Research Computing is focused both on research and curricular application of computational methods of investigation.


Materials are cross listed by categories or departments that use specific software, hardware or services.


Two exciting developments are our membership in the XSEDE collaboration and the award of an NSF CC* grant for Network Infrastructure to Support Computational Biology, Computational Science, and Computing Across the Curriculum with The Advanced Computing Group at UMaine and the Jackson Laboratory.

Here are three links for real time network performance.

At UMaine

At UNH Research group

The old way to check on system performance is at (including nscc loads and much, much more)


The best place to start for Data Management Plans here at Colby is .
