The NCAR-Wyoming Supercomputing Center is a high-performance computing and data archival facility located in Cheyenne, Wyoming that provides advanced computing services to researchers in the Earth system sciences.
The data storage and archival facility at NWSC holds unique historical climate records and a wealth of other scientific data.
Planning for this data center began in 2003, groundbreaking at the North Range Business Park in Cheyenne took place in June 2010, and computing operations began in October 2012.
NSF grants for computing, data, and scientific visualization resources are allocated to researchers who investigate the Earth system through simulation. The current HPC environment includes two petascale supercomputers, data analysis and visualization servers, an operational weather forecasting system, an experimental supercomputing architecture platform, a centralized file system, a data storage resource, and an archive of historical research data.
The NWSC also serves an educational role. Its public outreach program features the NWSC visitor center that explains the science goals and the technology of NCAR and the University of Wyoming.
