Advanced Computing

The High Performance Computing (HPC) research infrastructure was established in Monash University Malaysia to support research, providing powerful computing services that can reduce computing jobs taking several days to just a few hours.

It is composed of one master node (1×8 Core E5-2650 v2, 24GB Memory), twelve compute notes (2×8 Core E5-2650 v2, 256GB Memory) with a total of 192 processor cores, and is efficiently coupled with a disk storage system of 20 TB in capacity.

The infrastructure aims to support multidisciplinary research in the natural and social sciences such business, medicine, pharmacy, information technology and engineering.

It is currently used for research in the (but not limited to) following fields of study, i.e., from computer vision, image processing, optical network, machine learning, pattern recognition, combustion, turbulent flow, nanomaterials, genomes analysis, to disease association studies.
