HPC2021 is a high performance computing cluster with an aggregate theoretical processing power of 804 TFlop/s, supporting emerging and growing computing needs from a wide range of research disciplines in the University. HKU staff and students working on compute- / data-intensive research may register for the service at no charge.
- Cluster computing – User submits jobs (compute tasks in a research work) on a login node to be dispatched via a batch job scheduler for execution on a pool of compute nodes with network-shared data storage.
- Interactive data analysis and visualization via two I/O nodes with GPU accelerators.
- User consultation and support for software installation, configuration and cluster usage.
