HPC in one paragraph: High Performance Computing (HPC, also known as supercomputing) uses powerful computer facilities (100x-10,000x more powerful than PCs) to enable simulation, modelling and data processing to be carried out either much faster or on much larger problems than with normal computers – e.g. designing aircraft, modelling weather/climate, optimizing the design of household products, etc.

One day, sometime, I'll update this page with more content!
