Research Computing

There are four avenues for UTS researchers to access High Performance Computing (HPC):

  • The UTS eResearch HPC cluster
  • The UTS ARCLab
  • NCI and Intersect's HPC clusters
  • Amazon Web Services

The UTS eResearch HPC cluster

High Performance Computing (HPC) can be accessed by UTS researchers via the eResearch HPCC (High Performance Computing Cluster).

This facility provides:

  • a shared resource across the UTS research community
  • a test-bed for larger HPCC projects destined for Intersect/NCI.

Cluster Hardware:

  • 6 node AMD cluster, each node comprised of 48core/256GB for a total of 288 cores, 1.5Tb distributed memory
  • 4 node Intel/Nvidia GPGPU cluster, each node comprised of 32core/64GB/2 GPGPU for a total of 128 Intel cores, 256Gb distributed memory, 8 GPGPUs
  • 73TB Panasas ActiveStor14 SSD accelerated storage dedicated to the HPCC
  • 175Tb Tier 3 storage for medium-long term retention of datasets shared with other eResearch infrastructure

Access to the Cluster:

The eResearch team will need to give you access. Simply email to introduce yourself and your requirements to us.
