Stoney was funded under the PRTLI Cycle 4 funded project e-INIS. This grant was awarded to NUI Galway who in turn provided the system for national use managed by ICHEC. As well as being a distributed memory cluster, Stoney also hosted ICHEC's first GPUs when 48 NVIDIA Tesla M2090 GPGPU cards were added in 2012.
