Computing Resources

IDRE’s unique computational capability includes High Performance Computing resources and expertise, Grid and Cloud Access Services, Cluster Services, the Grid Portal, and UCLA’s data center system.

IDRE’s cloud and virtual computing research and development work is mainly focused on Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Storage as a Service (SaaS). These services provide users with the ability to provision processing, storage, networks, and other fundamental computing resources to deploy and run arbitrary software, which can include operating systems and applications and the ability to create storage space on demand.
