Since its inception in 1998, industrial outreach and economic
development within Western New York have been an important
component of CCR's mission. In addition, through CCR's role
in the NYS High
Performance Computing Consortium (hpc-ny.org), outreach
activities now extend throughout New York State.
Specific areas of support in outreach and economic development
include the following:
- Provide the WNY and NY State industrial community with access
to state-of-the-art high performance computing resources (hardware,
software and consulting services) to help foster economic
development. This includes access to a 3400 processor (72
teraflop) industry cluster.
- Work directly with NY State industry to help them utilize HPC
resources to improve their productivity, develop new products, and
provide them with a competitive advantage.
- Provide the WNY research community with access to high
performance computing resources in order to facilitate their
research and in so doing increase the volume of externally funded
research dollars coming to WNY.
- Provide outreach and education in the area of high performance
