Viper, the University of Hull’s first institutional High Performance Computing (HPC) facility. Viper was one of the world’s first HPC systems that used the Intel Omni-Path high-speed interconnect, combined with the Intel Broadwell CPU. This combination gives University of Hull researchers in disciplines such as medical and biological engineering, astrophysics, chemistry, computational linguistics, computer science and drama a fantastic opportunity to develop and expand their research in directions that are, at the same time, both challenging and extremely exciting. With over 5,500 computational cores, Viper represents a significant commitment to research at the university, providing researchers with a game changing computational resource.
