High Performance Computing
Services for solving complex computational problems
High Performance Computing refers to the practice of aggregating computing power in a way that delivers much higher performance than one could get out of a typical desktop computer or workstation in order to solve large problems.
At the University of Aberdeen we have our own HPC ‘Maxwell’, hosted in the Edward Wright Data Centre. The video and links in this resource give you a better idea of what HPC is and how you might be able to use it in your work or research. The service is available to all members of staff and Postgraduate Research students.
