Usage & Storage Stats

Research today demands computing resources that are fast, powerful, and grid-enabled to accommodate data-intensive calculations and facilitate collaboration across national and international borders. Day and night, WestGrid resources are processing, visualizing and storing data in support of research from well over 50 university departments, involving hundreds of users and thousands of computational jobs.

WestGrid Support Staff play a critical role ensuring its HPC resources are being used effectively and to the best advantage of the user. Support staff are available to help users get started on the systems, can lend advice on ways to leverage HPC resources within a research program, and will ensure the technical aspects of users’ projects are matched with appropriate systems.

The graphs in this section were created to share a high-level glimpse of how WestGrid’s advanced computing resources are shared across research disciplines and geographic locations. If you have any questions about the data presented in these charts, please contact
