Scientists qualified in their respective field of research can submit proposals for access to HPC resources operated by Paderborn Center for Parallel Computing (PC²). We offer multi-million core-hour projects on the most recent generation of Intel Xeon processors with a low-latency interconnect. We intend to grant up to 30 million core-hours to an outstanding "flag-ship project".
PC² provides a portfolio of preinstalled applications and offers support for software installation/configuration of project-specific applications. We advise our users on using the resources in an efficient way. In particular, we provide consulting services for users from computational chemistry and solid-state physics. Furthermore, PC² encourages approximate computing and the acceleration of applications with Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA).
