What is HPC?

HPC is a part of the North Texas Scientific Computing, offering state-of-the-art computing, storage, visualization, and networking service to the university. We help researchers and other members of UNT use advance computing power to enable higher research throughput and expand research capabilities.

Our services include the following.

  • Maintaining HPC allocations and resources for UNT researchers and UNT courses
  • Consultation services in performance research on HPC
  • Community training and outreach including workshops and HPC tutorials
  • Providing end-user HPC support
  • Exploring grant opportunities for HPC related projects
