Computing Cluster

Berkeley Research Computing offers and supports access to the Savio Institutional/Condo Cluster, which intends to meet campus computing research needs. A free “Faculty Computing Allowance” on the cluster is offered to all PIs (and their affiliated researchers), and researchers may purchase “condominium” nodes on which their computing jobs run with priority access.

More information can be found here; please contact brc-help-help@berkeley.edu with questions.
