We have significant access to computing clusters, for performing data analysis, for example ATLAS collision events and simulations, for example electromagnetic simulations. Each node (or computer in the cluster can operate individually or tasks can be distributed to the entire cluster and it operate as a single computer performing calculations significantly faster than on a desktop computer.

Grid cluster
50 nodes each with 2 x 4-core Intel Xeon, 2.33 GHz = 400 cores
Each node has 16 Gbyte of RAM and 500 Gbyte of storage, with access to 300 TB of network storage

Local computation farm
40 nodes with 4 core AMD Phenom-II = 200 cores
Each node has 8 Gbyte of RAM and 50 Gbyte of storage
