BlueCrystal is the University's High Performance Computing (HPC) machine. BlueCrystal Phase 3, is available to all users. Guidance on using Phase 3 is in the BlueCrystal User Guide. We are currently bringing Phase 4 into service.

As part of work in the Physics Tank Room to improve future resilience, we have to turn off the power to Phase 3 from Tues 25 July at 5pm for 24 hours. We will start bringing Phase 3 back on Thurs, and hope that it will be available by Fri 28th, but it may be Mon 31st before the full service is restored.

The Phase 2 queues have now been turned off and no further jobs can be submitted. If you have data on there that you wish to retain, it needs to be moved by Mon 31 July, 2017.

Site map available here.
