Innovation Campus taps high-performance computing at the Milwaukee Institute

MILWAUKEE, Sept. 2, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The UWM Foundation and the Milwaukee Institute today announced their partnership for high-speed computing (HSC) resources at UWM's new Innovation Campus in Wauwatosa. Innovation Campus tenants Brooks Stevens and Concordia University will be the first organizations to use the services provided by the Milwaukee Institute.

The Milwaukee Institute's recently upgraded HPC cluster is the largest publicly accessible supercomputing resource of its kind in Wisconsin. It allows users the ability to simulate, model and analyze complex applications used in product development, engineering, research and other projects. Using this resource, Innovation Campus tenants will be able to quickly test their product designs and create virtual prototypes, getting their projects off the drawing boards and into the general marketplace more quickly.

"Innovation Campus is ecstatic to have such resources," said David Gilbert, executive director of Innovation Campus, and president of the UWM Foundation and UWM Real Estate Foundation. "Researchers and product developers at Innovation Campus will be able to easily use the Milwaukee Institute's high-performance computing tools without the financial burden or organizational distraction of maintaining their own IT plant. They can focus on what's most important – their research."

The Milwaukee Institute provides high-performance computing resources to other organizations in the region, including Marshfield Clinic, the Medical College of Wisconsin and various departments at UWM. The Institute provides similar services to Wisconsin corporations such as Rockwell Automation and Briggs and Stratton.  

"We are delighted to be working with the researchers, scientists and product development specialists at Innovation Campus," said Jay Bayne, executive director of the Milwaukee Institute. "Our partnership is further evidence of the momentum behind a shared, advanced IT infrastructure in Wisconsin. This model allows people to design, test and commercialize their ideas in record time without the burden of incurring capital costs."
