Infrastructure and services supporting computational research.
The Shared Hierarchical Academic Research Computing Network (SHARCNET) is a consortium of 19 universities, colleges and research institutes providing a range of high performance computers and software, linked by an advanced fibre optics network. Its overall aim is to promote the use of high-performance computing to accelerate the production of research results for researchers, Canadian industries, the economy and society in general. SHARCNET is a leading provider of this critical enabling technology and of training for highly qualified experts in computation. Thus, it plays a major role in supporting innovation in both academic and industrial research environments. This facility is part of the pancanadian high-performance computing network managed by the Digital Research Alliance of Canada (nationally) and Compute Ontario (provincially).
