This Pilot HPC Platform allows PolyU’s researchers to run, test or develop their applications for research purpose use. This platform is launched in July 2017 and the details is shown below:

Item Pilot Platform
No. of Clusters 1 HPC Cluster
1 HADOOP Cluster
Computing Resources
Total No. of CPU Cores Over 400 cores
Total Memory Size Over 6TB
Software Packages (Version update)
ANSYS(Fluent) 17.2
GCC 4.4.7 and 5.3.0
OpenFOAM 1606+
OpenMPI 2.0.1
Perl 5.24.0
Python 2.7.12 and 3.5.2
R 3.2.3
Intel Compiler N/A
Target Service End Date July 2020

In connection with the roll-out, a new HADOOP Cluster will also be introduced in the new pilot platform to support researchers in the area of data analytics.
