High-performance Interactive Visualization and Electroacoustics or HIVE is a 448-core cloud based platform currently being built at the CCT. HIVE is a tool for collaboration between artists and developers seeking to build new forms of digital expression using high-performance computing. Projects created using HIVE can take many forms including web applications, games, animations, audio, or a combination thereof. Given its ease of scalability and provisioning HIVE is also a sandbox for defining new practices in cluster-based rendering, sonification, web graphics, and interactive media.
