Rutgers Discovery Informatics Institute (RDI2)provides expertise in multidisciplinary computational and data-enabled research, advanced high performance computing research infrastructure, as well as support, training and consulting services.

The Rutgers Discovery Informatics Institute (RDI2) uses advanced computation to address today’s compute- and data-intensive challenges in science, engineering, and industry. The overarching goal of the Institute is to establish a comprehensive and internationally competitive Computational and Data-Enabled Science and Engineering (CDS&E) effort at Rutgers University that will nurture the fundamental integration of research, education, and infrastructure.  RDI2, with support from the State of New Jersey has established a balanced advanced research computational and data environment composed of large-scale high-end compute engines and clusters, as well as significant co-located storage with embedded analytics capabilities. This platform provides researchers, students, industry and government across the state with access to ACI capabilities for research and instruction. For more information.
