- A small number of compute nodes with 48G per core
- Hundreds of software applications installed
- Work is submitted to a batch queuing system
- Limited 'free at the point of use' access

Researchers are encouraged to contribute to these systems rather than purchase their own smaller HPC clusters. It is often possible to get more out than you have put in! There are some ‘free at the point of use’ resources available.
