Cloud Tutorials


The Interactive Graphical Environment for Research (TIGER) is the OSU research cloud managed by the OSU High Performance Computing Center. By using a series of servers and virtual machines, TIGER fills the gap between limitations of a user's desktop computer and the much faster, more powerful computing resources of the OSU HPCC.

Benefits of using TIGER:

  • Uses a familiar Windows or Linux environment
  • Access to various software applications (ArcGIS, MATLAB, SAS and more)
  • Variety of open-source and unrestricted programming platforms (Python, R, git and more)
  • Multi TB shared storage**
  • Customized configurations to meet your research needs


**TIGER storage is intended to store files and data for current projects. It is not intended to be used for general or long-term storage. If you need archival storage, there is PetaStore available in Oklahoma.
