High Performance Computing - Rivanna

A traditional high performance cluster with job scheduler, large file system, modules, and MPI processing.

Get Started on Rivanna


Secure Computing for Sensitive Data - Ivy

A multi-platform, HIPAA-compliant system for secure data that includes dedicated virtual machines (Linux and Windows), JupyterLab Notebooks, and Apache Spark.

Get started on Ivy


Virtual Machines - Public/Private Cloud

Cloud-based computing solutions are also available in Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, and our private cloud UVA Skyline. All three provide options for quick deployments, short-term lifecycles, and unique requirements such as GPUs or clusters.


Microservices and Containers - DCOS

Do you have a containerized service or web application to run for your research project? We are now running DC/OS, a platform designed for running fleets of containers independently of one another. This includes web applications, databases, specialized tools, and other solutions in support of HPC jobs.
