Everthing is getting bigger in Texas. The University of Texas System Board of Regents has unanimously approved $23 million for improvements that will increase connectivity and computer capacity for all 15 University of Texas institutions, support research projects, and foster stronger collaborations among scientists in Texas and around the world.

Discoveries at the leading-edge of science require increasingly powerful computational technologies and are increasingly collaborative,” said TACC Director Jay Boisseau. “This project will greatly enhance the ability of researchers at UT System institutions to address the most challenging computational problems, and to work together to make breakthrough discoveries.”

The improvements will allow institutions to conduct projects using shared data storage. This will enable researchers from different sites to access a single data source, aiding collaboration. A UT Data Repository prototype will be developed to provide disk storage and data collection management software for open science and clinical research data.
