HKU High Perfomance Computing sticky icon

In the academic research area, High Performance Computing (HPC) facilities are heavily used for solving computational problems that are not flexible to be done using conventional computers due to the huge amount of CPU power, memory, network and disk space requirements.

In order to facilitate intensive computations, Information Technology Services(ITS) has set up several High Performance Computing cluster, High Throughput Computing and grid facilities.

The HKU e-Research Community is a communication platform for multi-disciplinary researchers who are currently High Performance Computing and Grid Computing users (HKU e-Researchers). It also serves as a repository of the profiles and researches of HKU e-Researchers. Staff and students who are looking for intensive computing resources to assist in their research projects may also find interest in joining this community.
