UNIGE's high performance computing service (HPC) consists of two clusters, each consisting of approximately 4,000 interconnected computing cores. It is an extremely powerful configuration, particularly suitable for massively parallel computing. The Baobab and Yggdrasil clusters are respectively installed on the Uni Dufour and Sauverny sites (soon available) of UNIGE.

In addition to those already provided, other suitable scientific software can be easily installed. Our HPC engineers make them available to researchers to install the software they need. Researchers may also purchase additional compute nodes. More information about the UNIGE HPC environment can be found on the eResearch website.
