Services & facilities PDC provides
Overview of resources & assistance that PDC provides for HPC research
We have application experts available in various research areas who can assist you, for example, with using the software in your field on the PDC systems in the most efficient way, or with developing or fine-tuning your own code. Our application experts have a background in a research area as well as extensive computational experience and knowledge of the PDC systems. PDC's system administrators also function as system experts who can assist you with complex problems more related to programming tools, data storage, operating system issues and the hardware side of using PDC's systems.
We also provide a wide range of software that is used in different research fields for simulation and modelling, as well as for developing code.
Researchers who are using PDC’s services are welcome to visit PDC and use a desk or room at PDC while collaborating with PDC staff.
To keep the hardware in PDC's systems running without interruption and in an energy-efficient way, a significant infrastructure is required to supply power and cooling, and to monitor how the systems are working, although you will not interact with the infrastructure components directly as a researcher using our systems.
