The HPC and HTC environment is a mix of HPC/HTC resources including shared memory, distributed memory and high throughput computer systems and a high capacity storage system. The base systems are purchased and supported with central funding so there is no charge for using the systems.
: Research groups can 'Buy-In' (add resources such as processors, memory, storage, etc.) to the base HPC/HTC systems as funding becomes available. Buy-In research groups will have highest priority on the resources they add to the system.
