Flinders University is home to Deep Thought, the University’s High-Performance Computing (HPC) platform. High Performance Computing (HPC) is the practice of aggregating computing power in a way that delivers much higher performance than one could get out of a typical desktop computer or workstation in order to solve large problems in science, medicine, engineering, or business.
The Deep Thought platform is based onsite, and is available to all research staff at the University to service your research computing needs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Deep Thought specialises in workloads that require:
- High performance / large scale Central Processing Units (CPU)
- General Graphics Processing Units (GPU)
- High Rapid Access memory (RAM).
