In an effort to advance research and provide premium computing services to researchers throughout the university, KFUPM introduced High Performance Computing (HPC) services in 2008. Information Technology Center serves as a central gateway to high performance computing resources. High-Performance Computing (HPC) services provided by ITC is a part of the initiative to provide state of the art support for research and academic computing at KFUPM. HPC group provides students, researchers and faculty with entry and medium level high-performance research and education computing facilities and consulting support.
HPC services include shared memory computing, distributed memory computing, GP-GPU computing, a suite of applications, and consulting on computational issues.Through this site, faculty researchers can view the systems and services available to perform their research, open accounts for access to these computational resources and obtain service and support to successfully and smoothly carry out their projects.
