AUSTIN - Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) has announced its third expansion in 13 years to accommodate the center's growth and demand for computing systems.

TACC has broken ground on a new three-story, 38,000-sf building adjacent to its existing facility, which is expected to be completed in January 2016.

TACC sits on The University of Texas’s J.J. Pickle Research Campus at 10100 Burnet Rd.

TACC is able to keep growing because users can tackle more challenging problems in science and engineering and access more types of systems, such as data storage and cloud computing, according to TACC Executive Director Dan Stanzione.

Users are more diversified because more industries, such as biomedical, realize the usefulness of computing in their fields. Stanzione said in the biomedical field, genomics — the study of genetics and molecular biology — is now a digital science instead of just a lab-based science.
