Welcome to the Computerome 2.0 Wiki

Access to Computerome

Access to Computerome is available to everyone interested in Danish Life Sciences and we encourage both academic and industry users to use the facility.

If you are affiliated with the University of Copenhagen (UCPH), please contact UCPH IT for the access to Computerome 2.0.

If you are interested in accessing Computerome 2.0 please find the form that suits your need and send it to

For information regarding pricing and quotes please contact Computerome National Life Science Supercomputing Center:

Setup and Security framework

The Danish National Supercomputer for Life Sciences has an ultra high-density footprint, and is installed in two 500kW containerized Tier IV data center modules.

The system is designed using the bioinformatics reference architecture developed by CBS over the past 20 years and using the standard practices in the industry. It has a full set of comprehensive tools for both management and usage of the system. To get acquainted with the physical Hardware setup please visit here.

Getting Started

The Getting Started page guides new users in the use of the system.

Your are welcome to send us your questions or requests to  Computerome support (

When requesting support, it is very helpful if you can include at least the following information:

  • A relevant and descriptive Subject:
  • Which system am I on - Computerome HPC or <named> cloud system - including specific node(s) you are working on.
  • What I did - command line(s), loaded modules, working directory, jobid(s), etc.
    • Specifically for login issues, please always provide:
      • Tool you use (ThinLinc, SSH login)
      • Username
      • Hostname you connect to
      • Messages you receive
  • What I want to happen

About Computerome

The Danish National Supercomputer for Life Sciences (a.k.a. Computerome) is installed at the DTU National Lifescience Center at Technical University of Denmark.

The computer hardware is funded with grants from Technical University of Denmark (DTU)University of Copenhagen (KU) and Danish e-infrastructure Cooperation (DeiC) - also, it is the official Danish ELIXIR Node.

Computerome 1.0 was opened in November 2014 at #121 on TOP500 Supercomputing Sites.

The current setup, Computerome 2.0, was opened in 2019. It's compute resources consists of 31760 CPU cores with 210 TeraBytes of memory, connected to 17 PetaBytes of High-performance storage,

Please see the Hardware page for further details.

Computerome and the Tryggve project

Computerome is a building-block in the Tryggve project that is working to establish a Nordic platform for collaboration on sensitive data, and that is funded by NeIC and the ELIXIR nodes in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden.

The Tryggve project welcomes use-cases from researchers collaborating on sensitive data with researchers in other Nordic countries. Please follow instructions on the Tryggve Getting Started page.

As part of the Computerome engagement in Tryggve, Computerome is committed to the Tryggve Code of Conduct.

The Name

The Computerome (pronunciation: \kəm-ˈpyü-tər-ōm\) cluster supercomputer is named in accordance with the use of the '-ome' suffix in the field of study in biology.

Computerome is housed at DTU Risø Campus.
