Members of the University Oldenburg have access to a central high-performance compute (HPC) cluster, which is maintained and operated by IT services. The technical specifications of the current HPC system can be found under HPC facilities.

Frequently Asked Questions

    In order to use the HPC cluster you have to request an account, which typically is ready to use in 1-2 days.
  2. I have an account, what should I do next?
    The first you should do is to read the documentation in the HPC Wiki, that answers many questions about the usuage of the cluster.
  3. Where can I get additional information?
    You are more than welcome to contact our scientific computing staff, alternatively your colleagues may be able to help you as well. There is also a regularly changing range of courses available, where you can learn more about using a HPC Cluster for your projects. Additionally, you can find nearly everything important regarding the HPC on our Wiki. There, you can find another FAQ which is more detailed than this short introductory FAQ.
  4. Which applications are available on the HPC cluster?
    There is a long list which is displayed on the cluster by the command "module available". But a much better way would be to take a look at the software wiki page.
