Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Center

The creation of MGHPCC represents a landmark collaborative investment by MIT, Harvard, Northeastern University, Boston University, the University of Massachusetts, and the Commonwealth, with additional private investment from Cisco and EMC. Opened in November 2012, the center established a profound and unique collaboration among these five major research institutions to build and maintain a large-scale computational capacity.

This collaboration enables major new advances at the forefront of a broad range of research areas and enhances the ability of these research institutions to attract and retain top researchers and students.  The center enhances the economic competitiveness of Massachusetts in big data, life sciences, healthcare, energy and other industry clusters. Located in downtown Holyoke, Massachusetts, the center represents the single largest economic development project in western Massachusetts over the last decade. The MGHPCC anchors a new Innovation District in Holyoke that drives the innovation economy in Holyoke and the region, in addition to providing a vital increase in regional and statewide computing capacity. It is expected that the Innovation District will serve as a catalyst for economic, educational and workforce development in Holyoke and the region.
