We provide world-class high-performance computing (HPC) facilities and expert user support, enabling South Australia’s research community to conduct advanced research and development locally, and to collaborate in national partnerships.

Access to these services as well as training and support are provided for a fee, which is generally forwarded to the user’s institution. In most cases, the institutions do not pass costs on to the researcher, but this can be changed at the discretion of your institution.  Read more about our general conditions of use. 

If you have complex data processing or analysis jobs to perform, talk to us to find out how HPC resources can help or read our HPC frequently asked questions.

Our HPC facilities

We maintain extensive supercomputing facilities, giving South Australian researchers from all institutions access to shared infrastructure.


The new TANGO HPC is part of a specialised hardware cluster built using a combination of Dell EMC and VMWare, hardware and software technologies to deliver a powerful computational solution.  This platform consists of core technologies that allows us easy and fast expansion for the delivery of high performance computational resources.
