Advanced research computing
Advanced research computing (ARC) is an important component of Canada’s digital research infrastructure. The term ARC refers to the elements required to perform computationally and data-intensive research and data management, including high-performance computing, community cloud computing, networks and storage. The Digital Research Alliance (DRAC) provides a National ARC platform that strives to meet the needs of the Canadian researcher community. The University of Manitoba is a member of the Alliance and, as part of the Prairies DRI Group, a major support site for the Alliance Federation. The university also maintains its own high-performance computing system, Grex. Researchers (faculty, students and research staff) of the University of Manitoba are eligible to access both local and national ARC systems and support.
