We do however realise that for some UoM researchers this still won’t meet their requirements and that they will have out-grown the on-site platforms, such as the CSF. Also some researchers may have specialist requirements which are as yet unmet by local resources. In order to tackle this the Research Infrastructure Team is launching a National HPC and Tier-2 Support Service aimed at helping University researchers use and make better use of the national HPC services - ARCHER, the UK national HPC service; and the EPSRC Tier-2 services.
The service will:
- offer help to University researchers applying to gain access to these services e.g., by using knowledge and experience from successful applications
- provide support for their use, from job submission to optimisation of workflows and code.
