Center for Parallel Computing
The Center for Parallel Computing (CPC) is utilizing a scalable parallel supercomputing platform, which is similar to those used by other academic institutions around the world who are currently using clusters consisting of standard and readily available components and software.
The cluster is utilized for mathematical modeling, simulations as well as processing numerical research data.
Any extra unused CPU power can be bought by external users.
