Rutgers Discovery Informatics Institute (RDI2) Description and Resources
Rutgers Discovery Informatics Institute (RDI2)provides expertise in multidisciplinary computational and data-enabled research, advanced high performance computing research infrastructure, as well as support, training and consulting services.
The Rutgers Discovery Informatics Institute (RDI2) uses advanced computation to address today’s compute- and data-intensive challenges in science, engineering, and industry. The overarching goal of the Institute is to establish a comprehensive and internationally competitive Computational and Data-Enabled Science and Engineering (CDS&E) effort at Rutgers University that will nurture the fundamental integration of research, education, and infrastructure. RDI2, with support from the State of New Jersey has established a balanced advanced research computational and data environment composed of large-scale high-end compute engines and clusters, as well as significant co-located storage with embedded analytics capabilities. This platform provides researchers, students, industry and government across the state with access to ACI capabilities for research and instruction. For more information.
Key ACI resources and services provided by RDI2 include:
