The WFU DEAC Cluster facility was established in July 2002 to provide a centralized research computing environment for the entire University.
Clusters provide enormous computational power to tackle more advanced scientific problems, opening up the possibility for our students to gain a unique perspective on topics in the forefront of research today.
The WFU DEAC Cluster provides the critical infrastructure necessary for researchers to reliably upload research codes, perform large scale computations, store their actively utilized results, and have confidence in the persistence of their data in the event of storage failures.
Any Wake Forest University or Wake Forest University School of Medicine faculty member is strongly encouraged to request the use of the cluster for a course they are teaching. Several courses have already used the WFU DEAC cluster to enhance the student’s exposure to the advanced computing environment provided by the University.
