The High Performance Computing facility at Bharathidasan University has been installed to provide software resources and services to solve computationally-intensive research problems. This central facility has been established under the Department of Science and Technology's DST-PURSE (Promotion of University Research and Scientific Excellence) scheme at a cost of Rs. 1.3 crores for the benefit of faculty and research scholars of the University. The facility is designed to be utilized by the BDU student community for their research needs like Numerical Analysis, Molecular Modeling, Docking and Dynamic Simulations of Biological Macromolecular systems such as protein and DNA using the HPC Software Suite. This facility can be utilized by the faculty and students from their department computers itself by using the campus network.
The facility has One Head Node and 10 Compute Nodes with each compute node consisting of 2 numbers of 10 core processors. This system also has a storage capacity of 18 Tera Bytes.
