  • Research Value Storage

    Overview Research Computing offers several budget options for storing non-sensitive research data. The Research Value Storage provides users with a solution for research data storage and collaboration. Members in the same group have access to a shared directory created by the team lead or PI. Group membership can be defined and managed through ITS MyGroups system. Value storage is mounted on the Rivanna HPC cluster and can also be accessed on a personal computer with an SMB mount, allowing for point-and-click file manipulation. If you are not a researcher, UVA ITS offers Academic Value storage for long-term storage of large scale data.
  • Rivanna HPC Software

    Overview Research Computing at UVA offers a variety of standard software packages for all Rivanna users. We also install requested software based on the needs of the high-performance computing (HPC) community as a whole. Software used by a single group should be installed by that group’s members, ideally on leased storage controlled by the group. Departments with a set of widely-used software packages may install them to the lsp_apps space. The Research Computing group also provides limited assistance for individual installations. For help installing research software on your PC, please contact Research Software Support at res-consult@virginia.edu. Software Modules and Containers Software on Rivanna is accessed via environment modules or containers.
  • Mission

    Research Computing is a support team at the University of Virginia whose mission is to empower researchers to achieve more through the use of cutting-edge computational resources. We strive to create innovative solutions for researchers who need help solving complex optimization, parallelization, workflow, and data analysis issues. Our strategy is to build and maintain the University’s best computing platforms while educating the next generation of researchers on the power and utility of advanced computing.
