NSF MRI Award to UVA

March 23, 2020 @ 3:00 pm 4:00 pm

Ron Hutchins is currently VP of IT at University of Virginia in Charlottesville, VA.

Ron’s focus at UVA has included growing research computing services in both the systems and the support team. Through two NSF awards (CC* and MRI) UVA has focused on high performance connectivity and protected data. The 2019 award of the ACCORD MRI grant is expanding support for computing resources for protected data, both HIPAA and CUI, for UVA and the other public universities in Virginia. Through this award, the ACCORD partners will be able to host protected data and perform high throughput and highly parallel computations on that data. A focus is being put on building a library of containers that can be reused to speed up approval of the computing environment for research. This presentation will include a brief overview of the ACCORD program and answer any questions.
