High-performance Computing

The NCHC provides many kinds of highly stable and efficient computing facilities for Taiwan's government, academia, and industry.

Computing is the foundation of scientific research. As Taiwan’s only national-level supercomputing center, we provide HPC services to science, research, and other interdisciplinary fields. We plan the assembly of advanced computing mainframes, high-efficiency PC clusters, and various engineering and scientific application software and databases. These resources provide domestic researchers a fast and stable HPC environment.
