Get started on Big Red II

Big Red II is Indiana University's main system for high-performance parallel computing. With a theoretical peak performance (Rpeak) of one thousand trillion floating-point operations per second (1 petaFLOPS) and a maximal achieved performance (Rmax) of 596.4 teraFLOPS, Big Red II is among the world's fastest research supercomputers. Owned and operated solely by IU, Big Red II is designed to accelerate discovery in a wide variety of fields, including medicine, physics, fine arts, and global climate research, and enable effective analysis of large, complex data sets (i.e., big data).

Following is a selection of IU Knowledge Base documents to help you get started using Big Red II; for additional documentation, search the Knowledge Base.
