The Foundry is Missouri S&T's newest computational high performance cluster. The Foundry is available for S&T students without any additional cost to them. Students simply need to request access through the help desk and fill out the supplied online form which will be emailed to them after the request is made.
If you are not an S&T student or faculty member you still can apply for access to the Foundry.

Formal access requests should be accompanied by a one-page PDF proposal document providing the following information:
The Foundry utilizes 143 AMD EPYC Rome (Ryzen 2) based compute nodes and 6 nvidia GPU nodes containing 4 Nvidia V100 CUDA GPU cards each. That equates to a 350% increase in computational capacity over the Forge.
The Foundry is built on Ubuntu 18.04 and utilizes SLURM as a scheduler and resource manager. The Foundry has an assortment of closed and open source software available via modules. These include, but are not limited to, the Intel and GNU Compiler Suites, various scientific software, MPI-enabled versions of the previously mentioned software, as well as various utility programs and editors.
