PPPL Research Computing
PPPL's Research Computing Center provides both batch and
interactive scientific computing for PPPL, Princeton's graduate
school programs located at PPPL, and the fusion community. It
processes parallel computing, single CPU, as well as
shared memory batch jobs in a variety of sub clusters.
The design goals of the center are high performance, ease of
use, and support for the mid to small size jobs not favored by
the large leadership computing sites.
