UTRC / UT System
The University of Texas Research Cyberinfrastructure
The UT System implemented the UT Research Cyberinfrastructure (UTRC) initiative to provide new capabilities that advance current and future research efforts across all UT institutions. By providing a combination of advanced computational systems, a large data storage opportunity, and high bandwidth data access between the institutions, UTRC enables researchers within all 15 UT System institutions to collaborate with each other and compete at the forefront of science and discovery.
UTRC incorporates integrated operations (central and distributed, connected at high bandwidth) and works with researchers to develop applications, manage and analyze data, and integrate with the decentralized resources. Through the UTRC Project, the UT System has facilitated, stimulated and supported leadership in computational science research across Texas, as well as, attracted additional funding and the best faculty and students to UT institutions.
The collaboration between UT System and TACC leverages advanced computing, visualization resources, and support services to enable researchers to learn to use UTRC resources effectively. TACC staff members also assist research teams in employing the software and expertise necessary to foster educational innovation, and are dedicated to providing the research and development, consulting and training required so users can take full advantage of TACC resources, services and educational programs.
