Welcome to High End Compute

Would you like to learn how to get your results faster? Or to have a friendly introduction to parallel programming held at your works? Or to reduce your running costs by improving the efficiency of your software and hardware? Well, High End Compute can help via our training and wide range of services

Or perhaps you prefer higher resolution modelling? Or a bigger model?

How about using less energy for your computing?

Or considering how to explain parallel computing to a new audience or support in delivering high quality standalone training?

Whether it's ARCHER2 or PRACE, we can help with MPI, OpenMP and hybrid coding. We have extensive optimisation and parallelisation experience (see our top tech tips) with ARM techonlogies, AMD and Intel chipsets, the IBM Blue Gene architectures and with numerous open source performance & debugging tools.

Or perhaps you want to explore accelerators such as Intel Xeon Phi or GPU cards, maybe HTC in the Cloud, we have experience with OpenAcc, OpenCL and CUDA - but which to choose?. Our experience with emerging technologies has included FPGAs and data flow too.

As you know, it's not just about the compute. Data is a key element too. Both in terms of technologies such as Hadoop, Spark, MapReduce, & Storm, but also in terms of fast, understandable visualization of your data to provide the information and wisdom you require. And of course you may wish to optimise your use of the underlying parallel file system too.

Take a look at our services, the useful information we have collated for your fingertips, news on high end compute and comprehensive list of forthcoming conferences or join one of our discussions.

Our Approach

If you want code to go faster, then we can help.

If you want to know more about the energy costs of your simulations and data analyses, then we can help.

But we'd like to help you longer term by explaining the steps we went through. We give you the optimised code and the skills in how to accelerate your other codes.

We also provide training and general advice.

Who are We?

High End Compute was set up in 2013 by Michael Bane. HEC is also a member of the HPC Advisory Council, a partner of ParaTools Inc and a member of the Mont Blanc End User Group. Michael himself has a solid history of innovative ideas including: setting up a university GPU Club (2010s - examining vendors' claims); initiating a next gen h/w cluster for experimental development work; leading the formation of the EMerging Tech international conference series and is currently Chair of the EMiT conference series, with #EMiT2019 held at the University of Huddersfield on 9-11 April 2019. Michael is also on the Programme Committee of the the Computing+Sustainability+Education workshop of the ICT for Sustainability conference
