Roar Collab High-Performance Computing Overview

High-performance computing (HPC) is the use of powerful computing systems that are capable of performing complex tasks and solving large-scale computational problems at significantly higher speeds and with greater efficiency than conventional computing systems. These tasks often involve processing and analyzing massive datasets, conducting simulations, modeling complex phenomena, and executing advanced algorithms. The increase in computational performance is a result of the aggregation of computing resources and utilizing those resources in concert to perform the computational process. HPC systems consist of many compute nodes that communicate over fast interconnections. Each node contains many high-speed processors and its own memory. Typically, the nodes also are connected to a shared filesystem. The seamless integration of the compute, storage, and networking components at a large scale is the fundamental essence of HPC. HPC plays a critical role in pushing the boundaries of academic research and enabling breakthroughs in science, engineering, and technology across diverse fields of study.
