High Performance Computing


ITS supports High Performance Computing (HPC) service for University researchers and scholars from diverse disciplines whose work requires intensive computations. HPC service is currently supported by two high performance Linux clusters. These clusters are used for solving complex computational problems that cannot be supported by standard desktop computers or workstations.  The clusters can support research projects that require a sizable CPU power, memory, network and disk space as well as parallel programming for improving research efficiency.  

ITS arranges training courses on parallel programming for staff and students to acquaint them on how to use parallel programming to optimize the use of computational power in calculations and program running.
