The SFSU Center for Computing for Life Sciences (CCLS) Dell PowerEdge Cluster is a high-performance computer cluster designed for general scientific, technical, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) research in the field of life sciences. Its current configuration is particularly suitable for bioinformatics research, as its storage capacity is sufficient to store the complete genomes of a number of species. As CCLS continues to serve the STEM community at SFSU, CCLS Dell PowerEdge cluster shall grow to suit the needs of the community. Note that the cluster is designed for computational performance; it is not a data storage cluster nor is it a high-availability cluster. Users are responsible for their data.

The CCLS Dell PowerEdge Cluster is available for student and faculty researchers of CCLS-approved research. CCLS is dedicated to serving the STEM community and has a general policy of installing and supporting Open Source software critical for life science research. Proprietary software may be installed, subject to the Computing Resource Use Policy.

If you are a CCLS researcher and would like access, please read the Computing Resource Use Policy and fill out the HPC account request form. If you have an account and need an application to be installed on the Cluster, fill out the HPC support request form.
