Colonial One High Performance Computing

For research needs that use high-performance computing for data analysis, GW has implemented Colonial One, a shared high-performance computing cluster. Colonial One is managed by professional staff in the Division of Information Technology, with university-sponsored computational staff housed in the Computational Biology Institute, Columbian College of Arts and Sciences, School of Engineering and Applied Science and the Milken Institute School of Public Health.

Access to Colonial One is open to the university community for research, academic classroom use, and students.
