KRISP has access to cutting-edge servers, including High Processing Clusters (HPCs) computers at CHPC and SAMRC and has dedicated Linux servers and multiple top of the range MacPro Desktops. KRISP has also installed 100s of bioinformatics software applications and pipelines with allows us to provide world class bioinformatics support and services to the academic and commercial community. For example, KRISP has worked with the Centre for High Performance Computing (CHPC) of the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) to have access to the 'fastest supercomputer in Africa' with 64.44 petaflops (PFLOPs) machine.
