The KIPAC community includes Stanford Physics and SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory researchers as well as many outside collaborators. Access and effective use of computational resources is central to nearly all scientific activities at KIPAC. These include theoretical simulations, data analysis, and experimental simulations, all of which call for CPU, storage, and network infrastructure.
KIPAC researchers have access to parallel computing clusters, large memory machines, parallel file systems, and visualization capabilities. We have central software installations, licensed packages, network disk storage, and backup. We have substantial allocations at the Stanford Research Computing Center and SLAC's computing center. The resources and information needed to get started on these systems are available on our KIPAC computing wiki.
