Organization profile

The Minnesota Supercomputing Institute has the software, hardware, and experts to provide the support you need for your research no matter what the research area.

The mission of the Minnesota Supercomputing Institute (MSI) is to provide advanced research computing infrastructure and expertise to the University of Minnesota research and scholarly community and the State of Minnesota in order to advance and accelerate research and foster innovation and discoveries through advanced computing technologies, scientific computing and informatics, application development, and services.

MSI fosters innovation and discovery through advanced research computing. MSI's goals are to (1) ensure high quality, state of the art computing infrastructure to enable the University of Minnesota research and scholarly community to advance science, engineering, and society through advanced research computing; (2) ensure high-quality expertise and capabilities to develop innovative solutions in support of compute- and data-intensive research of the University of Minnesota research and scholarly community; (3) partner with the University of Minnesota research and scholarly community and their collaborators to enable projects that require advanced research computing; (4) deliver solutions effectively and efficiently and be responsive to user needs; and (5) expand the capabilities to users outside of the University of Minnesota, as appropriate, while respecting the needs of the University of Minnesota’s research community as MSI’s primary user.

MSI also provides fee-based dedicated technical consulting and analytical services tailored to support specific research initiatives or development programs. Examples include long-term programming assistance, development of customized research and analysis environments, informatics support, database development and implementation, discipline-specific analytical services, collaboration environments or networks, web-based interfaces for research, analysis, or collaboration, sustained training, and advanced visualization services.
