Research Computing

UCD High Performance Computing cluster Sonic, our R server and links to ICHEC services and training.


Research IT provides High Performance Computing through our Sonic HPC, we also have other computational resources like our RStudio server and access to ICHEC National and Condominium Services. The HPC environment is ideal for researchers who need access to substantial computing resources, allowing them to greatly reduce the time required to perform large scale calculations.

How should I acknowledge use of the ResearchIT HPC cluster?

For use in academic publications we suggest the following line;

"We acknowledge the Research IT HPC Service at University College Dublin for providing computational facilities and support that contributed to the research results reported in this paper."
