GRACE stands for Glue Research and Academic Computing Environment. It is also a nod to Grace Hopper, a pioneering computer scientist who invented the concept of machine-independent computer languages and linkers. It is designed to help meet some of the information technology needs of faculty, students, and researchers at the University of Maryland. Because the needs of different campus members can be diverse, different users might have different views about what GRACE is. But it provides students and faculty with
- Unix-based compute resources, compilers, and various software packages for scientific computing.
- A modest amount of network-attached storage with a standardized directory layout. This layout provides areas for the instructor to share files with the students, private areas for students to do work, areas to facilitate collaboration among students, and areas for TAs to do work.
- A web-based tool enables instructors to manage the GRACE class.
- A roles-based system for controlling the level of access rights. Students registered for the specific course are automatically granted student-level access for as long as they are enrolled.
