High performance computing cluster

Use of device

computer simulations and other complex numerical tasks with high demand on computational power, primarily parallelised problems or large-scale parameter studies.

Basic function

using the queueing system SGE, series of calculation problems can be systematically executed; depending on the requirements, calculations can be split up to between more than 1000 processors
