Core research facilities

A variety of core laboratories support medical research on the WSU Health Sciences Spokane campus.

Centralized computing resources

The WSU centralized institutional research computing resources consist of two main platforms.

IBM I-Dataplex

The IBM high-performance computing (HPC) solution supports jobs with large memory requirements. It consists of 164 computational nodes and 3 special purpose nodes.

Kamiak cluster

The $1.3M Kamiak pilot cluster is operated and managed under the principles of a “condominium” model: modular enhancements to centralized resources are provided by contributions from researchers. The Kamiak cluster can deliver a peak performance of 20 TFlops and supports both GPUs and CPUs, as well as a high-memory-per-core ratio. It enables simulation and data science “at-scale.”
