OIT Services for Researchers

The Office of Information Technology’s (OIT) research computing team is ready to help you get started in your research, pedagogical, or creative endeavors at UA. Our team supports UA’s high-performance computing (HPC) clusters hosted in our colocation HPC data center. We also provide a Geographic Information System (GIS) platform for researchers and campus departments working with geospatial data. If you also require data storage, web portals, getting started with AI/ML, database servers, cloud compute resources, or research software licensing, we can help.

Our team is always happy to find the right services for your project – from grant proposals to project data archiving. See below to learn more about OIT’s research computing services.
