Biowulf High Performance Computing at the NIH
NIH HPC Systems

The High Performing Computation (HPC) systems at the National Institutes of Health provide computational resources and support for the NIH intramural research community.

The main computational resource is Biowulf, a 95,000+ core/30 PB Linux cluster. Biowulf is designed for large numbers of simultaneous jobs common in the biosciences, as well as large-scale distributed memory tasks such as molecular dynamics. A wide variety of scientific software is installed and maintained on Biowulf, along with scientific databases.

Additional systems include:

Biowulf Hardware
Hardware installed for Phases 1 through 4 of the NIH HPC Initiative.
