High-performance computing (HPC) is the aggregation of computing power and memory to perform complex calculations in parallel, increasing the speed and efficiency of computer simulations and data analysis.

In 2018, a collaboration of Middlebury faculty in the social and natural sciences and Middlebury ITS staff successfully secured a $150,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to build Middlebury’s first HPC cluster.

Dubbed “Ada” in honor of Ada Lovelace, the famed 19th century mathematician, the cluster is a tool intended to support the research efforts of faculty who rely on access to expanded computing resources. We continue to add to our collaboration as resources become available.
