Please note that this page is under construction. We are documenting the 240-node cluster maya that will be available after Summer 2014. Currently, the 84-node cluster tara still operates independently, until it becomes part of maya at the end of Summer 2014. Please see the 2013 Resources Pages under the Resources tab for tara information.

Committees

HPCF is a community-based, user-driven facility. This is reflected in its governance structure.

The user committee works with DoIT staff on technical issues of the setup of the machine. Its members at present are

As the user base of the machine grows over time, we anticipate extending this committee to reflect a cross-section of affiliations, usage types, and expertises. Ordinarily, the chair of the user committee serves as point of contact for HPCF (see above), but you are welcome to contact other members of the committee if necessary.

The governance committee was established to more broadly discuss and decide policies for HPCF. Its members at present are
