HPC Cluster About
ELSA High Performance Computing Cluster
ELSA (Electronic Laboratory for Science and Analysis) is TCNJ's heterogeneous High Performance Computing (HPC) cluster named after the famous “Born Free” lioness and our mascot.
ELSA’s compute resources are currently comprised of over 113 servers, providing 2,080 central processing unit (CPU) cores, 84 graphics processing units (GPUs), and approximately two petabytes of network-based storage. The cluster is housed in this dedicated Scientific Computing Center in TCNJ’s newly constructed STEM Building.
Example areas of faculty and undergraduate research and teaching using the ELSA cluster include:
- Applied Mathematics
- Big Data
- Catalytic Chemistry
- Evolution & Phylogeny
- Fluid Dynamics
- Genetics & Bioinformatics
- Machine Learning
- Mathematical Biology
- Natural Language Processing
- Synthetic Biology
