Though TACC's reach is nationwide, its heart bleeds burnt orange. Since its inception, the center has aimed to help scholars throughout The University of Texas System's 14 institutions.
The University of Texas Research Cyberinfrastructure (UTRC) initiative provides advanced computing systems, large data storage, and high bandwidth data access between the institutions, enabling researchers to collaborate and compete at the forefront of science and discovery. The efforts have led to impressive discoveries at every UT System institution.
