Welcome to PC˛

ARMINIUS - Compute and Visualization Cluster

The Paderborn Center for Parallel Computing, PC˛, is an interdisciplinary institute of the University of Paderborn, Germany. We are specialized in distributed and parallel computing for research, development and practical applications. New emerging fields of applications are investigated together with our partners. Practical work is done in a number of different areas shown on our research and project web pages.

Our parallel computers are amongst the most powerful of their type. They enable us to study practical applications in a high-performance computing environment. Among our computing facilities are several large InfiniBand-clusters with up to 10.000 processor cores, and some smaller machines. These systems can be accessed conveniently by all users via the X-WIN network.

Within the supporting groups, theoretical work is done to develop methods and principles for the construction and efficient use of distributed and parallel computer systemsPC˛.de Shortcut.
