Research Computing Services (RCS) is a group within the wider University of Calgary Information Technologies team that plans, manages, and supports high performance computing (HPC) systems in use by researchers throughout the University of Calgary. Our primary focus is to meet the increasing demand for engineering and scientific computation by offering a wide range of specialized services to help researchers solve highly complex real-world problems or run large scale computationally intensive workloads on our high-end HPC resources.

This RCS Wiki contains technical documentation for use by users of HPC systems operated by RCS
