Getting Started at CARC


The CARC Systems Group provides customized software consultations and development. (Contact director@carc.unm.edu)

All computational researchers (faculty, students, and staff) affiliated with the University are encouraged to take advantage of the Center's resources in order to advance their research. Two key steps are needed in order to begin using Center supercomputers, clusters, or research storage systems. The first is the completion of an online Project Request by a faculty member (PI). 

Upon approval by the Center, all users under the Project must separately complete an online Account Request. Each Account Request will trigger an email to the Project PI requesting yes/no authorization to create the account.  Once approved by the PI, CARC technical staff will create the account and notify the user to pick up their login and password information in person at the Center. This will require a UNM or other official ID.

Please refer to the CARC QuickBytes, which provide brief technical summaries to assist users in setting up their computational environment, using parallel software, compilers, Matlab, remote GUIs, etc.  If you require additional assistance or have a question not covered by the QuickBytes, please submit a help request to help@carc.unm.edu or via the web form; see QuickByte #15: How to Write a Great Help Ticket for more information.

The Center offers an Intro to Computing at CARC workshop on a rolling basis, based on user demand. See Workshops, Training, & Courses at CARC for upcoming dates, or email workshops@carc.unm.edu to sign up for a future workshop. 

Note: The U.S. Government controls exports of sensitive equipment, software and technology as a means to promote U.S. national security interests and foreign policy objectives. Please see the Export Control page for relevant CARC policies and procedures. 

In addition, HIPAA, PHI, PCI, and FERPA data may not be stored on or transferred via CARC systems.
