Welcome to ACISS

ACISS is the University of Oregon’s supercomputer that offers the most powerful computing resources available on campus. The goal of ACISS is to provide scientists with  thousands of processing cores, high-performance computational accelerators, hundreds of terabytes of storage space, and high-speed integrated network interfaces. The project was funded by a $1.97 million National Science Foundation grant awarded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, Principal Investigator Allen Malony.



The ACISS machine was brought to the University of Oregon through  a Major Research Instrumentation grant from the National Science Foundation, Office of Cyber Infrastructure, Principal Investigator Allen Malony, “MRI-R2: Acquisition of an Applied Computational Instrument for Scientific Synthesis (ACISS),” Grant #: OCI-0960354.
