HPC Facilities and Expertise for Data Processing, Modelling, Simulation and Visualisation

Researchers at Monash can access a variety of High Performance Computing (HPC) facilities including the Multi-modal Australian ScienceS Imaging and Visualisation Environment (MASSIVE), the National Computational Infrastructure (NCI) National Facility; the local Monash Campus Cluster (MonARCH); and Research @ Cloud Monash (R@CMon). The Monash eResearch Centre provides specialist expertise in all aspects of scientific computing, including simulation, data processing, visualisation, and cloud computing.


MASSIVE – Multi-modal Australian ScienceS Imaging and Visualisation Environment: MASSIVE is the Australian specialised HPC facility for imaging and visualisation. It is particularly suited to: data processing, in particular image processing and analysis; interactive visualisation; modelling and simulation, in particular problems suited to Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) parallelisation; and large-scale visualisation problems requiring multiple nodes for rendering.

R@CMon – Research @ Cloud Monash: R@CMon provides self-service computing and storage infrastructure supporting national research with a particular focus on the Clayton precinct. R@CMon is one of eight nodes of the National eResearch Collaboration Tools and Resources Research Cloud (NeCTAR RC) with capital funding provided through NeCTAR by the Australian Commonwealth Government.
