High Performance Computing

Want to get data analysis faster or many more results in the same time? HPC parallel processing allows for multiple computations (large data sets) to be processed in a faction of the time it takes for a single high speed computer. Think of having 50 or 100 computers dedicated to processing your project’s data. Achieve faster results, spend more time in the field and less time behind the computer, and bring your projects up to speed high performance computing resources.

Cloud Computing

How much of your research depends on a single PC working correctly? How long would it take to recover from a hardware failure? Tired of maintaining computers? Want to spend more of your time on your research and less time (and money) on computer maintenance? Want to share a dedicated computer among multiple users with little risk? Want reliable, cost effective, and fast computing power? Realize all this and more with virtual machine (VM) technology and cloud based storage options.

Visualization Wall Technology

Get the Big Picture

Tired of sacrificing resolution to view large data close up? Want to present the bigger picture clearly? The vWALL located at Norman Smith Hall on the UMaine campus provides a wall of six displays measuring 12 ft by 4 ½ ft. Maximizing the resolution of one display’s resolution power to the collective of six 55 inch displays coupled with high speed fiber connectivity, this system delivers real time data streaming in a big way. Come see it for yourself.  It allows you to see your images, such as map data for example, without having to continually zoom in to see more detail and zoom out to see more area.
