BeoShock HPC accelerates research, provides students with applied computing experiences

Wichita State University’s high-performance computing (HPC) cluster is available to students, faculty and staff. Since its implementation, it has helped accelerate research and provided valuable computing experiences for students.

Named after “BeoShock” after “Beowulf” and Shockers, the computing cluster has two large GPUs (Graphics Processing Units) and 800 CPU (Central Processing Unit) cores. As a comparison, most end-user computing devices have one CPU having between one and eight total cores.

The cluster is also available to all WSU constituents, and those outside of WSU who are Kansas Board of Regents constituents. To learn more about BeoShock HPC, visit the website. For questions, contact personnel listed here.
