Research Computing @ UIC
UIC is extending its services to research computing by providing up a high performance computing facility that supports the University's research community by dramatically reducing the time to obtain solutions for problems that are computationally intensive. Also UIC enhances its research computing services with access to UGC Infonet program and an in house Digital Library that contains lot of resources for teaching and research.
About High Performance Computing @ UIC
A computer cluster is a group of linked computers, working together closely so that in many respects they form a single computer. The components of a cluster are commonly, but not always, connected to each other through fast local area networks. Clusters are usually deployed to improve performance and/or availability over that of a single computer, while typically being much more cost-effective than single computers of comparable speed or availability.
Generally a cluster system has a Head node and multiple compute nodes. All the compute nodes are controlled by the Head node. Using a single monitor, Keyboard and mouse we can access both the head node and compute nodes through a KVM (Keyboard, Video, Mouse) switch.
UIC is providing this High Performance Computing facility using cluster computing with one head node and three compute nodes. This facility is utilized by various departments of our university for research purposes.
UGC Infonet Programme
The University Grants Commission (UGC) has initiated the UGC-Infonet programme to provide electronic access to scholarly literature over the Internet in all areas of learning to the University sector in India. The programme is wholly funded by the UGC. All the universities which come under UGC's purview will be members of the programme, and it will gradually be extended to colleges as well. The UGC-Infonet Programme has been implemented in our University during April, 2004.
UGC is modernizing the university campuses with state-of-the-art campus wide networks and setting up its own nationwide communication network named UGC-INFONET.

BDU's Intranet Digital Library is an integrated set of services for capturing, cataloging, storing, searching, protecting, and retrieving information, which provides coherent organization and convenient access to typically large amounts of digital information. Digital libraries are realizations of architecture in a specific hardware, networking, and software situation, which emphasize organization, acquisition, preservation, and utilization of information. All digital libraries have three kinds of content: content they simply provide access to, content already in digital form that they buy and enhance, and content they create.
