SCIENTIFIC PLATFORMS



The Scientific Platforms Service(s) are focussed on the hardware and related technologies on which researchers can implement their applications, carry out processing or store their data, these services include the equipment to deliver an end-to-end capability.

The Pawsey Supercomputing Centre maintains a range of compute capability and data storage capacity for use by the research community, including:

  • Magnus - a Cray XC40 Supercomputer, for highly-parallel distributed programs.
  • Galaxy - a Cray XC30 Supercomputer, used exclusively for radio astronomy.
  • Zeus - a HPE heterogeneous cluster, for GPU-accelerated programs, large memory applications, and other specialised workflows.
  • Topaz - a dedicated GPU-enabled cluster, for GPU-accelerated programs.
  • Nimbus -  a Research Cloud allowing the provisioning of resources for pilot studies, data analysis workflows, virtual laboratories, etc.
  • Storage - Pawsey provides several levels of storage facilities and filesystems for research applications.

Documentation for using the supercomputers can be found in the Supercomputing Documentation area.

More information relating to the Nimbus research cloud service can be found by following the links found in the Nimbus Documentation.

Technical information on the HPC systems can be found in the more detailed HPC Systems documentation.

Networking

Pawsey manages data movement & communications throughout the Pawsey environment, as well as external links and ingest services to partner entities and research facilities as required.

This link will take you to where you can Apply for Nimbus Cloud access.
