  • A 21-node Rocks Cluster attached to 7TB of networked storage. TWU faculty and student researchers have access to this university-owned high-performance computing cluster, nicknamed Agnito. Able to handle large data set computations and analyses in parallel, computer clusters harness the power of multiple servers to act in conjunction as a supercomputer. Computing clusters are used for research in various disciplines, including computational chemistry, large-scale event modeling, social network analysis and real text data mining.
