Services Overview

Main content start

Stanford Research Computing provides a number of services, from helping you specify computing and data needs for research proposals; to scalable and affordable data storage platforms; to consultation on your specific computing needs and problems; to computational platforms and resources. We want to help you find the best solution for your specific need, whether that solution results in you using resources at Stanford or at a national HPC resource.

Several of our services relate directly to physical hardware, including hosting and system administration. Hosting largely takes place at the Stanford Research Computing Facility (SRCF), a data center designed specifically to host high density, power-consumptive computing equipment. A Stanford building located on the SLAC campus, the SRCF is intended to meet the research server hosting needs of the campus for years to come. In addition, we continue to host servers at the original Research Computing Facility (RCF) in Forsythe Hall.
