Available Hardware

We provide several computational resources to the UTSA research community. Users have access to our lab which contains Linux and Windows workstations and our high performance cluster and servers hosted in the UTSA Research Data Center.

For a detail list of available hardware, check the following hardware categories:

Windows Workstations

We have several high end Windows workstations, all running 64bit version of Windows XP or better.  As each workstation is typically associated to a particular software package, we require our users to reserve time on each machine.
