Babeș-Bolyai University’s HPC infrastructure

The HPC center is jointly operated by the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science and the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration.

The Center for High Performance Computing serves as an infrastructure for computational research at the Babeș-Bolyai University of Cluj-Napoca. Our HPC infrastructure supports research groups in a variety of scientific domains such as mathematics, computer science, physics, chemistry, biology, geography, meteorology, communication science and business/economics.

On this website, you can find:

  • information about available resources and a description of the current HPC infrastructure;
  • information about running projects within Babeş-Bolyai University that use HPC resources;
  • a short documentation how to use the available resources of the HPC facility.

The Center for High Performance Computing was born within the MADECIP project – “Disaster Management Research Infrastructure Based on HPC” (“Dezvoltarea Infrastructurii de Cercetare pentru Managementul Dezastrelor Bazat pe Calcul de Înaltă Performanţă”). This project was granted to Babeş-Bolyai University, its funding being provided by the Sectoral Operational Programme “Increase of Economic Competitiveness”, Priority Axis 2, co-financed by the European Union through the European Regional Development Fund – “Investments in Your Future” (POSCEE COD SMIS CSNR 48806/1862).

The infrastructure was upgraded throughout the following project: “Upgrade of the Cloud Infrastructure of the Babeș-Bolyai University Cluj-Napoca in Order to Develop an Academic Management and Decision Support Integrated System Based on Big&Smart Data – SmartCloudDSS” – POC/398/1/1/124155 – a Project Co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) through the Competitiveness Operational Programme 2014-2020.
