Colossus is the high performance computing facility at UiO hosted at USIT by the Research Infrastructure Services group.
Colossus is a cluster designed to handle multiple concurrent jobs and accomodate users with different requirements. The cluster profile is for medium range parallel applications with high memory and/or IO demands.
On Colossus we have also a DRAGEN node, a new powerful processor specifically designed for bioinformatics jobs.
