Our mission is to deliver reliable, sustainable computing resources and services to facilitate the use of high-performance computing and to meet the small scale and midrange computational demands of the Berkeley Lab and University of California scientific research community. We call this "Boutique HPC" since we deliver a high quality specialized service for research projects needing a HPC solution.

Computing is a tool as vital as experimentation and theory in solving the scientific challenges of the twenty-first century. Fundamental to our mission is enabling computational science, in which interdisciplinary teams of scientists attack fundamental problems in science and engineering that require computation and have broad scientific and economic impacts. Examples of these problems include global climate modeling, nanoscience, combustion modeling, carbon sequestration, astrophysics, computational biology, and many more.
