Research with large volumes of data usually we require access to High Performance Computing. The increasing demand for this kind of research has led many Institutions to develop their own computer clusters. However, in Cuba there is no definitive solution for the High Performance Computing Requirements of Institutions: such as the University of Havana. The expenses of building a computer cluster disallows many Institutions to have their own, while the low connectivity limits the use of international high performance computing services. This research presents an alternative solution based on the development of an email-based platform for accessing a computer cluster at Griffith University in Australia. This new communication interface has been successfully used on a large scale optimization research project at the University of Havana. Computational results show that by using the remote cluster it is possible to improve increase upon the performance of a personal computer by up to 1300%.
