Carbonate Supercomputer

Getting started on Carbonate

Carbonate ( at Indiana University is a large memory computer cluster configured to support high-performance, data-intensive computing. Carbonate can handle computing tasks for researchers using genome assembly software, large-scale phylogenetic software, and other genome analysis applications that require large amounts of computer memory. Accounts are available to IU students, faculty, and staff.

Following is a selection of IU Knowledge Base documents to help you get started using Carbonate. For additional documentation, search the Knowledge Base. For slides and lab files from past high-performance computing workshops, see Supercomputing quick start guides.
