Welcome to VSC – Vienna Scientific Cluster

The Vienna Scientific Cluster (VSC) consists of several cluster systems that have been designed to satisfy the demand for High Performance Computing (HPC) of a consortium of Austrian universities. At this time (2017) there are five VSC partner universities: TU Wien (Technische Universität Wien), University of Vienna (Universität Wien), University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Vienna (BOKU Wien), Graz University of Technology (TU Graz) together with the universities within 'Universitäts-Cluster-Süd', and University of Innsbruck (Universität Innsbruck).

Currently two of our Systems can be used: VSC-3 and VSC-2; our oldest system, VSC-1, was decommissioned by the end of March 2015.

VSC Research Center

The VSC Research Center operates together with the IT Services (ZID) of TU Wien the VSC supercomputer clusters and supports users of the systems. The VSC Research Center is a joint operation of the VSC partner universities and is, from a point of view of organization, attached to the TU Wien.

The center is devoted to facilitate the use of high performance computing (HPC) clusters, especially with a view of efficiency. [read more about the activities of the VSC Research Center]
