CAC prototypes software and beta tests hardware to bring new computational capabilities to Cornell and the national research community.

Extending the Role of HPC

From system “firsts” to an award-winning data storage implementation, our Center has a history of innovation that helps stimulate and extend the role of HPC in science and society.

Public-private sector partnerships available through our Partner Program lower the barriers to more widespread use of advanced computing technologies and spur economic and workforce development.

Breadth of Technologies

CAC is a rapid technology adopter. Our experience includes testing and deploying applications and systems from a wide variety of providers, including Apple, AWS, DataDirect Networks, Dell, Flexera, Globus, GNU, Google, IBM/Red Hat, Intel, MathWorks, Microsoft, MySQL, NVIDIA, Open Science Grid, and OpenStack.

Outstanding Technology Partners

We are especially grateful to the information technology companies that partner with Cornell to stimulate technology innovations and promote their widespread use.
