Do you need more computing resources than CHPC can provide?
CHPC typically caps general allocation at 250,000 core hours per quarter. If you need additional resources and do not want to purchase owner nodes on our clusters there are free national resources that you can explore. One such resource is the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE), which provides computing resources at a number of different partner institutions. Anita Orendt is an XSEDE Campus Champion for the University, so you can contact her for more information.
In addition, you can look into the Open Science Grid (OSG), to see if this option is a good match for your jobs. The OSG is ideal for high throughput workflows of relatively short (< 1 day) jobs that do not use MPI. Note that you can get allocation on OSG resources through the XSEDE allocation process.
Finally, for large scale computing needs, allocation requests can be made for time on NCSA's Blue Waters system.
