Advanced Research Computing (ARC)

The University of Maine and the University of Maine at Machias (UMM) utilize Advanced Research Computing (ARC) for all research computing needs. ARC provides expertise and resources for reliable and cost-effective high performance computing, AI support, data storage, and visualization, as well as for consultation, training, and grant writing assistance. ARC collaborates with premier national supercomputing centers, such as the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) and the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC), as well as regional and local partners, allowing UMaine and UMM faculty to select the most appropriate and cost effective service for any project. ARC is associated with the UMaine Coordinated Operating Research Entities (CORE), which provides federally compliant research equipment and facility service rates to members of the research community and their collaborators. Before conducting sponsor funded work that requires research computing as well as while developing grant and proposal submissions with a research-computing component, faculty and staff are required to engage with ARC.
