N8 High Performance Computing (HPC)

N8 HPC builds on the academic strengths and collaborative commitment of the N8, a partnership of research-intensive universities in the North of England. N8 HPC is an EPSRC funded project to provide a Tier 2 HPC facility of a scale not currently available in any of the partner institutions. This is especially useful if you need to scale up your research before moving to ARCHER or PRACE, or you have industrial collaborations that couldn't be accommodated elsewhere. By pooling resources the eight universities can have access to significantly more resources than operating on their own.

A simple application process has to be completed before access to N8 HPC can be permitted. For more information visit the website below.
