RCAC represents Purdue as a resource provider in the NSF-funded national cyberinfrastructure XSEDE (formerly TeraGrid) project. Our staff are actively working with our XSEDE partners, and have extensive knowledge and experience with XSEDE resources and services, as well as its many training and educational opportunities. They are well-positioned to help Purdue research community leverage XSEDE and other national resources such as the Open Science Grid in research and education proposals to funding agencies.
Software development projects are generally funded by grants and contracts based on developer time and skills required. Our staff actively work with faculty and research groups through all phases of a project, including, but not limited to, specification, design, coding, integration, testing and deployment. Check out the list of our current projects.
Our research scientists collaborate with faculty on grant proposals and support them by developing solutions and providing consulting to funded projects.
Our staff’s roles in proposals include (but not limited to) consulting on better utilization of high-performance computing, data-intensive and high-throughput computing resources, improving scientific workflows, developing software, creating, managing, and publishing data collections, creating educational and outreach visualizations, and assisting with acquisition and/or access to local or national advanced cyberinfrastructure and resources.
