The High Performance Computing Laboratory is home to some of our most powerful hardware. These high spec computers are perfect for resource intensive tasks involving big data sets, such as connecting numerous data points and making connections between them. The facility also hosts a Hadoop Cluster with 12 nodes, 144 virtual cores and 384GB RAM, which can be used to complete process heavy tasks.

The lab is open access and can be used by students in the School of Computing.
