To build central IT infrastructure and services that allow the WashU Researcher to focus on their research instead of acquisition and support of their own IT infrastructure. This multi-year program will have a portfolio of advanced IT projects designed to support and attract researchers, and put Washington University in a more competitive position to qualify for research funding.
- Transition research IT personnel into a new research IT focused group (RIS) to develop, design, implement, and support the advanced IT infrastructure in a platform-as-a-service model.
- Develop High-performance data storage services
- Develop HPC High-performance computing services
- Integrate storage services and compute services with research web services
- Develop software support services for common research community applications
- Provide design services for systems and workflow
- Educate WashU staff on the availability and use of the RIS services.
- To identify and continually evolve IT services for WashU researchers
