High-Performance Computing Research Center
The High Performance Computing Research Center (HPCRC) is Princeton’s new data center completed in December of 2011. The 47,000-square-foot with 5 MW facility provides a secure, reliable, and sustainable environment for IT equipment with 1.8 MW of UPS (scalable to 3.0 MW), 4.5 MW of diesel and gas power generation, and a designed Power Utilization Effectiveness of 1.5 at full load. The HPCRC serves as the home of TIGRESS -- the Terascale Infrastructure for Groundbreaking Research in Engineering and Science Center.TIGRESS is a collaborative effort that brings together funding, support, and participation from many departments and organizations across the University. The center is designed to create a well balanced set of High Performance Computing (HPC) resources meeting the broad computational requirements of Princeton's research community. The facility also will support a much smaller component of the University's administrative computing capacity.
- Building design is intended to meet LEED Silver standards
- Building is designed to be 33% more efficient than the computing center at 87 Prospect
- Energy efficient HVAC system including heat-recovery system
