This document provides a brief summary of user facing services running on HPRC infrastructure.

HPRC Service

Description

 Compute cluster

A CPU, memory, and disk resource for researchers.

Note:  The entry point into the HPRC cluster is zodiac.hpc.jcu.edu.au

Fileshares

A space where researchers may place one copy of their research files/data.

HPRC manage fileshare services on both Townsville and Cairns campuses.

Note:  Having a 2nd copy of your files/data elsewhere is a very good idea.

MATLAB

Fifty (50) MATLAB licenses are available for use by researchers.

A select list of MATLAB toolboxes are available with varying license counts.

Linux VM

A resource that may be provisioned for specific service(s) - e.g., database and websites.

Note:  Requests are subject to approvals from ITR management.

Windows VM

A resource that may be provisioned for specific service(s) - e.g., Windows systems.

Costs of Microsoft licensing must be paid for by the requesting researcher.

Note:  Requests are subject to approvals from ITR management.

Other software/protocols may be available to connect to the services mentioned above.

Note: HPC staff do not provide managed services for research VMs, although assistance may be provided.

Important: Personal files (e.g., holiday photos) are not permitted on HPC fileshares. Holding copyright/protected files (e.g., purchased music and video) on HPC infrastructure is illegal - JCU could be held liable. If you have permission and legitimate reasons to hold such material for research purposes, a copy of all relevant documentation should be given to ITR.

Performance: HPC provide no guarantees with regard to performance (download/upload speeds) of fileshares over a WAN (Wide Area Network). The HPC cluster, HPCs primary reason for existence, can cripple our storage system. HPC are planning to provide separate fileshares for researchers who don't use the HPC cluster.
