The CI Project
The Coastal Carolina University (CCU) Cyberinfrastructure Project (CI Project) is a joint collaboration amongst the School of the Coastal Environment, the Department of Coastal and Marine Systems Science, the Department of Computing Sciences, and the Office of Information Technology Services (ITS).
Its purpose is to provide scientific and research computing equipment and services to CCU faculty, staff, and students. Available services include High Performance Computing (HPC) clusters, large data storage, private cloud applications, software licensing, custom virtual machines, application hosting, and web hosting. Currently, partial funding support comes from the National Science Foundation (NSF) Major Research Instrument (MRI) award under contract AGS 1624068.
The CI Project resources specifically support research and creative production, as well as related special-purpose technologies. Various courses are supported by technologies within the CI Project. General academic computing services are provided directly by ITS.
