We propose to acquire a GPU-Accelerated cluster to support research in parallel computing algorithms, large-scale streaming data analysis, and parallel simulations at The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV). The proposed cluster, High Performance Rio Grande Valley Cluster (HiRGV), will support ongoing multidisciplinary research and provide student training using heterogeneous computing technologies along with different kinds of processors, such as multi-core and GPU. UTRGV is the secondlargest Hispanic-Serving Institution in the country and is ranked the fourth-best university in Texas, according to the for 2018. The HiRGV will enhance undergraduate (and graduate) research and increase collaborations with other institutions in the Rio Grande Valley Region of South Texas, such as South Texas College (STC), through various UTRGV exchange and outreach programs like a STEM Pathway’s System for the Rio South Texas Region. The HiRGV will support 14 major projects, which need to use the GPU-accelerated cluster intensely, for PI, Co-PIs, and designated Senior Personnel in the area of parallel simulation, parallel computing, machine learning, data mining, and computation theory from three colleges: CoS (College of Sciences), CoECS (College of Engineering and Computer Science), and VCoBE (Robert C. Vackar College of Business and Entrepreneurship). SAMs 1.1.4
