Who is the service for?
The University recently launched a Comput service which includes both on-site and cloud based high performance computing. Find out more here.
The on-site High Performance Computer (HPC), called Augusta, is available to any research student or member of academic staff, from any School or Faculty, who has the need for compute resource substantially greater than a standard PC.
This includes those who can run their applications on a PC, but find the calculations tie up their machine for an excessive amount of time, as well as those who need more processors and/or computer memory.
What does the service cost?
From 31 October 2018, costs for use of the UoN Compute Service including HPC will need to be costed into research funding bids.
Full costs for the Compute service are available on our Digital Research pages (login required).
Technical specification and access
The new on premise compute resources comprise of a mixture of classical x86 hardware and GPGPU accelerator hardware, a total of 4,720 cores, 31 TB of RAM, 8 GPU’s and 750 TB of storage is available.
Additional information about accessing the HPC service is available on the Digital Research pages (log in required).
Help and support
The Digital Research pages include documentation on how to access and use the service, as well as guidance on training courses, background information and links to further resources.
