The term high performance computing (HPC) refers to any computational activity requiring more than a single computer to execute a task. Supercomputers and computer clusters are used to solve advanced computation problems.
SHAMU is one of UTSA's high performance computational clusters and is maintained by Office of Information Technology (OIT) Research Computing Support Group (RCSG). RCSG provides performance solutions to Shamu that includes:
Please remember to acknowledge the use of Shamu in any publications, papers, reports, etc. Wording should be as stated below:
"This work received computational support from UTSA’s HPC cluster Shamu, operated by the Office of Information Technology."
