Servers in the Discovery building


Office Hours

Through Core Computational Technology (CCT), the Center for High Throughput Computing offers office hours Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2 to 3:30 p.m. on the second floor of the Discovery Building. Contact Lauren Michael to learn more.


As part of its service to researchers at WID and the Morgridge Institute for Research, the CCT team maintains and manages powerful computational resources hosted in a state-of-the-art machine room. These compute resources enable researchers to run computing jobs interactively or via batch submission. The computing environment also provides dedicated, backed-up storage to support data-intensive research. In addition to these research computing capabilities, CCT also provides related IT services, including multiple web environments to support the complete IT needs of building research teams. All of these resources are accessible through the Building’s secure high-speed network, which provides wireless and gigabit hard-wire connections.

The Discovery Building also houses a portion of the computing resources available campus-wide through the UW Center for High Throughput Computing. The Building network is specifically built to provide WID researchers with free and easy access to these external resources and to those of the extensive Open Science Grid. Access to these additional computing resources, on campus and beyond, allows researchers to maximize their computing throughput, accelerating data analysis and research progress.
