High Performance Computer Allocations

CompBioMed has been granted allocations on several large scale HPC resources to support the work of the project, shown in the table below.

Access to these resources is managed centrally. Anyone wanting to make use of an allocation on one or more of these machines should send an email to allocations@compbiomed.eu with the following information:

  • # core/hours & target machine (e.g. Archer, Cartesius, etc.)
  • Summary of intended research
  • Code used and (brief) description of parallel processing
  • If possible, a line or two on the need of a supercomputer and any experience with it is a plus

Below you will see some of the machines that we have access to and any limitations relating to those machines (especially for industrial partners)
