HPC account

The RRZK also provides services for scientific high performance computing (HPC). Researchers from NRW can use HPC to run simulations of complex problems.

HPC systems are capable of running highly complex computing applications. Regular workstations cannot process such computing-intensive tasks as they have limited resources or they would be unable to compute results in a reasonable time frame. As an example, HPC is capable of running scientific applications which are specially optimized for efficiency and parallel instruction on currently over 9000 processors. Research fields which use HPC include chemistry, biology, life science, meteorology, physics and economics.

An employee, student or guest account is required before applying for a HPC account.
