U-M Research Computing Package launches


Researchers can now sign up for the U-M Research Computing Package: no-cost supercomputing resources provided by Information and Technology Services.

As of Sept. 1, university researchers have access to the U-M Research Computing Package (UMRCP), a base allocation for 80,000 CPU hours of high-performance computing and research storage services at no cost. This includes 10 terabytes of high-speed and 100 terabytes of archival storage. Researchers must sign up on ITS’s Advanced Research Computing website to receive the allocation.

For Michigan Medicine researchers, the UMRCP builds on the Michigan Medicine RCP, a similar, no cost allocation of computing and storage services that was available for the past several years. With the campus-level investment in the UMRCP, Michigan Medicine stopped provisioning RCP accounts on August 20, and rolled all existing RCP accounts into the UMRCP program.
