Department of Biostatistics
Members of the Biostatistics department have several options available to them for compute intensive tasks.
The Department of Biostatistics provides a high performance computing cluster for faculty, students and researchers. We currently have 21 nodes with a total of 288 physical cores available. The cluster is managed with the Simple Linux Utility for Resource Management (SLURM).
There is a pool of compute servers available from both the department and the School of Public Health for compute intensive tasks. This pool of servers is available at no charge to all within the School of Public Health. More information is available from SPH Informatics and Computing Services technical guide 'Which UNIX machine should you use?' document.
The Center for Advanced Computing runs a High Performance Computing cluster environment for researchers at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor campus and their collaborators. Access to this cluster (known as FLUX) requires the purchase of an allocation on a per month per core basis. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request an allocation.
