HPC compute time



Data Analysis

What is HPC?

High-Performance Computing is the ability to process massive data and perform complex calculations at high speed to solve large problems in science, engineering and business.

A supercomputer is one the best-known types of HPC solutions and enables parallel processing: thousands of computer nodes working together to complete one or more tasks for simulation and calculation; in comparison one should combine thousands of typical computers working together to achieve similar results.

High performance computing system

What can HPC do for you?

High-performance computing systems are there anytime that you need a boost in your computational resources, so that you may have different options to enhance your calculations. No matter if you are looking for scalability of your own laptop setup, some large-scale data processing platform or highly parallel simulation: you may be able to choose the right HPC platform to achieve your goals.

Want to get started with HPC?

Read our offer

If you would like to get acquainted with HPC, AI, HPDA and quantum computing, but are not sure where to start, please contact our consultants.

From the National Competence Centre Netherlands, we offer SMEs, start-ups, large industry and public institutions the opportunity to make use of 8 free of charge consultancy hours.

What can you expect?

8 hours of consultancy

You can outline your problem and submit how best to draft the script. Or you want more in-depth knowledge on certain topics in order to reach better decisions. All questions are welcome. Our experienced HPC, AI, ML, HPDA and Quantum Computing advisers will be happy to help you.

50,000 core hours of computing power

Are you (also) looking for computing power? Then you can apply for 50,000 available core hours for testing. This is done on SURF’s HPC systems (Snellius).

2,500 core hours on SURF Research Cloud

Create your own virtual research workspace, use preconfigured workspaces and datasets or add them yourself. Collaborate safely with others on your data. Read more. 

Do you need more computing power or advice? Then please get in touch via our contact form and we will look at the possibilities together.

Are you a researcher connected to an educational or research institution?
Then you can make use of the HPC systems via SURF. This application is not made via EuroCC, but via SURF and NWO. Read more.

Example of companies that used HPC

Living lab for a sustainable world

Let companies and researchers test sustainable and smart technology in a lifelike environment that is what The Green Village in Delft is doing. The necessary data infrastructure has been developed in close collaboration with SURF.
