Research Computing


UC Merced's Research Computing streamlines the delivery of cutting-edge IT services to UC Merced faculty, researchers, and students. These services include: high-performance computing on the Linux-based, 2076-core MERCED Cluster, data collaboration using the 10Gpbs UC Merced Science DMZ Network, research data storage, and visualization on the Wide Area Visualization Environment (WAVE) facility. 

We can help you move, store and visualize data; utilize campus and regional computing facilities; and build IT-enabled science workflows that meet your needs now and into the future. We've standardized around approaches that are flexible enough to accommodate your needs, while still adhering to best-practices which are proven to be effective. So that you can get the most out of UC Merced's IDI service, we also offer training, drop-in office hours and consultation services.

We have partnered with the Kolligian Library to offer a Research Data Management service. We can help you formulate a Data Management Plan, specify and purchase storage, or publish your data. We also offer a variety of workshops in Data Carpentry, Software Carpentry and customizable workshops in GitHub, Jupyterlab (aka Jupyter Notebooks) and targeted HPC training.
