Access to adequate computing resources is essential for any computational science initiative. Moreover, these resources can serve as a high-performance computing watering hole where ideas are exchanged, collaborations formed, and cycles drawn upon to support interaction. We describe our efforts to bolster computational science research and education in the Boulder area by providing a computational platform for the community. We provide an overview of the educational, research, and partnership activities that are supported by, or have resulted from, this effort.
