UF: Happy New Year from Research Computing!

The message below is from the UF Research Computing email list, which anyone can subscribe to here.

Last year was a busy year for Research Computing—one that brought a new data center, a faster research network and connection to the Internet, and the launch of HiPerGator. The staff of Research Computing is not resting there. For 2014, we will continue to innovate and provide the services needed to support a top 10 public research university. The coming months will see new Dropbox-like storage options, Globus data transfer tools, application virtualization, and more. We hope you are as excited about these new research tools as we are in bringing them to you. As always, we are here to support your research computing needs, please contact us to discuss your needs and how we can help advance your research.
