Storage

  • HPC storage is compatible with Australian government requirements/guidelines (e.g., responsible research).
  • Your research data is too large to store on a personal computing device.
  • Data protection - disk failures are unlikely to result in lost data.
  • Protection against silent data corruption.
  • Research collaboration.

Compute

  • Certainty that memory errors won't invalidate your results.
  • Power outages (e.g., RCD testing) are killing jobs running on your desktop/laptop computer.
  • Running jobs on your computer takes too long and/or interferes with other tasks you need to do.
  • Your computer doesn't have enough memory to meet the requirements for your computational research.
  • Increasing your computational research productivity through parallel (e.g., MPI) execution of jobs.
  • Increasing your computational research productivity by running multiple jobs at the same time.
  • Increasing your computational research productivity through use of GPUs (from June-2018).
