The University of Wyoming runs a sizable condo, campus cluster in its Advanced Research Computing Center (ARCC ).  ARCC operates an IBM iDataPlex cluster of over 4500 general purpose cores and 68 GPUs known as Mount Moran.  Just over 400TB of high performance storage is attached to the ARCC systems.  Additionally the University has installed a Visualization facility consisting of a room sized CAVE and a mini-CAVE.  UW relies on the BiSON network for its general research connectivity and has a 100Gbps connection to the Front Range GigaPop (FRGP) and Internet2.  

The Advanced Research Computing Center (ARCC) is the primary research computing facility for the University of Wyoming. In addition to providing a centralized scientific computing resource, ARCC is also a gateway to other research institutions within Wyoming and across the nation. One of ARCC's primary mission elements is providing and supporting High Performance Computing to the research interests at the University of Wyoming.
