 ​High Performance Cloud Computing Centre




 

Overview

Cloud computing is defined as on demand offering of computing resources (infrastructure, platform and software) as a service over the internet using virtualisation technology. An advantage of cloud computing is that the computing resources can be allocated / deallocated automatically depending on the current demand of these resources; taking resources from idle users / software and giving it to active users / software thus optimising resource utilisation.  High Performance Computing is the use of parallel processing and distributed computing to achieve higher computing power for running advanced and complex programmes or simulations efficiently, reliably and quickly. Hence, High Performance Cloud Computing is the process of high computation on cloud to gain advantages of the cloud computing.


 

Vision

A globally prominent centre in research and innovation of high  performance cloud technologies for scientific and engineering computation.
 

Mission

  • To solve complex optimisation problem in scientific computing and engineering simulation
  • To undertake research i​n maximising computational performance while minimising cost
  • To proactively undertake research in policy and compliance

 

Application

Why should we change from normal computer to HPC?

  • COST SAVING

Low entry cost as Cloud Computing enables on-demand and scalability of resources. No more expensive cost of purchasing and maintaining of infrastructure.

  • LESS COMPLEX

HPC is specifically designed to compute complex simulations and computational problems. It is too much for normal computer to compute.

  • FASTER 

By using parallel and distribute computing, time to compute has increased by a huge margin. Research, production and marketing of the final product will be much faster and early of ROI.

  • DATA PROCESSING MADE EASIER

​Big and large data set requires a lot of small data to be processed simultaneously. This is where HPC shines!
