Welcome to the HPC Wiki! This aims to be a site-independent HPC documentation. This means all specific information about computing centers in different locations and their respective details are bundled in the site specifics section on the left hand site and all other articles should be held as general and site-independent as possible. This means everybody can use the same (this!! :) ) knowledge base, regardless where they are from and if information about the configuration of a particular system/computing center is needed, the site-specifics section should give an overview about where to find that.

Furthermore, there are different target groups with their respective material findable on the left hand menu.


Getting_Started is a basic guide for first-time users. It covers a wide range of topics from access and login to system-independant concepts of Unix systems to data transfers. While this gives an overview, all articles in the Basics Section are written with really inexperienced users in mind, to explain concepts in an easy-to-understand way.

A similar article in the Users and Developer Section are planned, but not yet finished.

Look into the FAQs to see tips and instructions on How-to-Contribute to this wiki.
