The Arctic Region Supercomputing Center (ARSC) is the high-performance computing (HPC) unit of the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF). ARSC is a top-level research unit, reporting to the UAF Vice Chancellor for Research. ARSC provides a broad range of research computing services to the University of Alaska community.
Core campus funding for ARSC operations is augmented through external grants and contracts from a variety of sources, including the National Science Foundation and Lockheed Martin through the Department of Defense High Performance Computing and Modernization Program (HPCMP).
ARSC supercomputers, storage, and other systems and resources are designed to meet the academic and research needs of university staff, faculty, and students. Since ARSC's first compute cycles were realized in 1993, ARSC has established a reputation for providing outstanding service in all aspects of high-performance computing.
