New England Research Cloud (NERC)

As a member of the Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Center’s (MGHPCC) consortium, Harvard is a sponsor of the New England Research Cloud (NERC), an on-premise, self-service cloud service available to many institutions in New England. Research groups can build out their own virtual machines (OpenStack) and data storage (NESE Ceph). The number and diversity of researchers in need of extensive computational capabilities is expanding, and the type of computation needed is shifting to require tools and elasticity that is best provided by cloud-native technologies rather than or in addition to traditional high-performance computing. 

Users and labs seeking cloud computing resources can and are encouraged to make use of NERC. While FASRC does not directly provide NERC services, we do encourage FASRC users and labs to make use of their services for any cloud computing needs.
