High Performance Computing Cluster (HPC)

With the advent of more powerful and effective scientific instrumentation, the complexity and amount of data being generated is exploding. The ability to process, analyze and ultimately act on this data is becoming a critical element of research success. Whether it be used for modelling, simulations, analysis or visualization of data.

The HPC is designed as a high available and versatile platform. Whether your job needs lots of memory, raw compute power or enormous storage demands, this HPC can handle your requests.
