Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Center (MGHPCC)
The Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Center (MGHPCC), is a collaborative project launched in 2009 that brings together the public, private, and academic communities of Massachusetts, to build the nation’s first state-of-the-art energy efficient computational facility. MGHPCC will be the testing ground for the “greening” of high-performance scientific computing data centers and will be located in Holyoke, Massachusetts. In addition to MGHPCC’s green goals, the facility will harness the computational power of the state’s five most research-intensive universities (Harvard, MIT, Boston University, University of Massachusetts, and Northeastern University), establishing MGHPCC as the premiere high-performance computing facility in New England. By combining the computing power and storage capacities of these institutions, MGHPCC will provide researchers access to a level of computation not available at independently operated universities.
