Looking for research resources?
ARC can help with your research computing needs. You may access data storage or High Performance Computing (HPC) allocations from multiple sources, with ARC serving in an advisory capacity throughout the process. Evaluations for academic researchers are often available at no charge.
Because ARC is associated with UMaine CORE and overseen by the Office of the Vice President for Research and Dean of the Graduate School, you have the assurance of UG Service Center compliance when engaging with ARC. Refer to the Office of Research Administration for more information about compliance considerations in developing proposals and executing research computing activities.
For technical questions regarding computational resources and services, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. ARC can provide assistance with requesting storage or computing allocations on the following resources:
