Information Technology

Polar Grid is an National Science Foundation (NSF) Major Research Instrumentation (MRI) funded partnership of Indiana University and Elizabeth City State University. The partnership goal is to acquire and deploy the computing infrastructure needed to investigate the urgent problems in glacial melting. This project will involve preparing E.V. Wilkins Computing Center to support a 600 node grid, and lab. This Grid system will be connected to the TeraGrid. The IT team is laying out the environment needed to house the Grid network system. E.V. Wilkins will require renovations and other upgrades.
