Welcome to VSC
VSC is the Flanders' most highly integrated high-performance research computing environment, providing world-class services to government, industry, and researchers.
We offer state-of-the-art technology from supercomputers to data & visualization and outstanding expertise, training, and support.
High-performance computing (HPC) started to gain traction in the 1990s with the introduction of massively parallel computer systems. Thanks to steadily increasing compute power and widespread availability of HPC infrastructure, HPC quickly became an essential component in nearly every field of scientific research. HPC is now firmly established as the third pillar of modern research, alongside theory and experimentation.
Today, HPC usage by large companies is widespread in the areas of manufacturing, aerospace, oil & gas, life sciences, and information technology. The classical usage for HPC is advanced 3D modeling and simulation, which is understandable when building things that need to fit together in assemblies and systems.
