Welcome to CACDS

Here at the Core facility for Advanced Computing and Data Science (CACDS) we are striving to enhance the High Performance Computing (HPC) expertise and resources available to the University of Houston community. Our expert and friendly staff help UH researchers by offering free consultation and training. Graduate students are especially welcome. Throughout each semester, staff members teach classes at various levels on many different aspects of HPC - all free to UH faculty, staff and students. They meet one-on-one with anyone interested in improving the performance of their codes, looking for new algorithms or seeking help to implement them. CACDS also hosts events, seminars, and workshops related to HPC topics. Contact us and let us help you enhance the performance of your codes.


Promotion & support of advanced computing to further Tier-One research and education at the University of Houston

CACDS Systems Status:

The Opuntia cluster and the Sabine cluster are currently available.

We will move the Opuntia cluster from the Computing Center (off Elgin St.) to the HPE DSI data center (Agrawal Building) on Monday August 26th 2019, 8 AM. This move will improve Opuntia’s operations. We plan a system downtime lasting for a week, from Monday to Friday. During such downtime, there will be no access at all to any of the cluster’s nodes. Any jobs you submit now will run normally if they request a walltime limit that concludes before Monday Aug 26th, 8 AM. We recommend that you now initiate an allocation/account request or any necessary job adjustments to use the Sabine cluster during the downtime so that your research is minimally impacted.
