Supercomputing (HPC)

Supercomputing, High Performance Computing (HPC), helps researchers find answers in huge and complex datasets.

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.
