Computing Facilities

The CORPNET research group has customized high performance computing facilities available to tackle the computational challenges of analyzing big corporate network data. These facilities are made available through a separate project titled

High Performance Corporate Network Analysis (HPCNA)

Most importantly, the infrastructure offers the community network analysis algorithms and techniques as-a-service.


  • Network data visualization
  • Network analysis as-a-service
  • Software sharing portal
  • Data sharing portal

Currently, part of the project is already running in a closed beta phase for UvA employees. If you are interested in participating, let us know!


  • CPU 1: Intel Xeon (Haswell) E5-2643, 6 cores, 12 threads, 3.4GHz
  • CPU 2: Intel Xeon (Haswell) E5-2643, 6 cores, 12 threads, 3.4GHz
  • Memory 24 x 64GB = 1536GB = 1.5TB DDR4-2133 RAM
  • Storage: 7TB solid state storage in RAID6
