HPC at DTU is both a facility where students and researchers can run their simulations, but also a laboratory where develop new software taking advantage of all the possibility of modern High Performance Computing, and to experiment with different solutions. For this reason, an extensive set of software packages, development tools and libraries is available and constantly kept up to date.
The HPC staff takes care of the installation, the management, and the maintenance of the software, paying attention to both reliability and performance.
Some the applications are installed and maintained by the software stack responsible for some of the cluster owners. In this way users of other clusters can benefit from knowledge in other departments or research groups.
The HPC software is divided into two categories: HPC Applications and HPC Development tools, such as compilers, debuggers etc.
The HPC software in DCC is currently constituted by:
