Supercomputing may be used in all research areas: to find genetic connections causing cancer, and ways to cure it. To find data that may predict weather conditions with catastrophic impact in order to reduce the consequences. HPC can identify patterns in literary works, analyse big amounts of data generated by internet use, and much more.
HPC finds structures in data and generates new research results.
The National HPC Center, SDU
The National HPC Center at the University of Southern Denmark with the computer Abacus 2.0 is designed to meet the demands from a broad spectrum of Danish research.
National LifeScience Supercomputer, DTU
The supercomputer at DTU Risø called "Computerome" is especially designed to be used by researchers within the life-science area. Research in this area places special demands on the amount of online data and the speed of transfer between the storage and the compute facility.
National Cultural Heritage Cluster
DeiC has established a national cultural heritage cluster in cooperation with the Royal Danish Library in Aarhus. The cluster lets researchers perform data mining in the Danish digital cultural heritage available at the Royal Danish Library in Aarhus.
PRACE - European HPC resources
DeiC is the Danish national member of the European Research Infrastructure on advanced computing, PRACE. The membership makes it possible for Danish researchers to apply for advanced HPC resources in the annual PRACE calls.
Dellingr - a Nordic project on HPC resource sharing
The participating countries in the NeiC projekt on resource sharing have all contributed with HPC resources. The resources can be applied for by Nordic researchers.
