The Teton Compute Environment (Teton) is a high performance computing (HPC) cluster that offers over 500 compute nodes and 1.2 PB of storage, with an expected uptime of 98%, allowing researchers to perform computation-intensive analysis on datasets of various sizes.

Teton can be securely accessed anywhere, anytime using SSH connectivity with UWyo two-factor authentication.

Teton Storage

Teton’s storage is divided into three isolated filesystems to ensure that researchers have control of where their data are, and who can access it. 

  • /home: for configuration files and software user specific installations.

  • /project: a collaborative area shared among project members.

  • /gscratch: a large and fast storage area to temporarily store large data sets while they are being processed. This area is not backed up and is subject to periodic purges of old data.

Project and Account Requests

For research projects, UWyo faculty members (Principal Investigators or PIs) can request a research project on ARCC HPC (high performance computing) resources, using this form. Note: you can also submit an initial set of users using this form.

User Accounts require a valid UWyo email address and a UWyo-Affiliated PI sponsor. UWyo faculty members can sponsor their own accounts, while students, post-doctoral researchers, or research associates must use their PI as their sponsor. Users with a valid UWyo email address can be added in the project request or added later, using the Request New Account form.

Non-UWyo external collaborators (Ex_Co) must be sponsored by a current UWyo faculty member. Ex_Co accounts can be requested here.

Once access is granted, connection to ARCC HPC resources may be established via SSH. Note that SSH connections require Two-Factor Authentication.
