Research computing encompasses computer hardware, from laptops to computer clusters to supercomputers; research-oriented software, including commercial and open source software, and custom-written programs; databases and massive data storage devices; visualization equipment; high-speed networks; and the application of these computer resources to research projects. Research computing is employed at various levels by numerous researchers representing all schools on campus.
