Peak Computing Facility


The VLSCI Peak Computing Facility (PCF) provides high performance compute infrastructure and computational expertise to Life Sciences researchers across Victoria. The PCF boasts state-of-the-art, tightly-coupled clusters with very fast disk subsystems, currently operating at a peak capacity of 46 teraflops and building to petascale computing by 2013. To help researchers maximize their use of compute time and get the most out of their allocated resources, the PCF has a team of skilled system administrators, programmers and application specialists accessible through its help request system. Our experts also regularly update user documentation in response to new issues, software licencing and system changes.
