Sockeye: advanced research computing infrastructure allocations available

UBC researchers in all disciplines are invited to apply to access UBC’s advanced research computing infrastructure, UBC ARC Sockeye. The first application deadline for resource allocation in 2020/21 is January 24, 2020.

Sockeye is a high-performance computing platform that will address immediate computing and storage needs of many UBC researchers, as well as issues surrounding health data access. 

UBC’s Advanced Research Computing (ARC) team is overseeing the implementation of Sockeye, and will be running information sessions in Vancouver on January 16 and the Okanagan on January 15. These sessions will outline the infrastructure, how it can be utilized in different areas of research and the application process for resource allocation. 

This infrastructure is the result of a $7.9m capital investment made by the university in 2018 to support UBC’s strategic plan, specifically Research Excellence Strategy 7: Research Support.
