Welcome to the Advanced Computing Research Centre

The Centre has a mission to help establish Bristol University as a world class centre for research into advanced computing systems.

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.

BlueCrystal Phase 3: there is some reduction in the number of nodes available between now and 20 October, as we undertake some essential electrical work in the data centre. The vast majority of nodes will remain on at any given time and we have taken steps to ensure that some hi-mem nodes and GPUs will be available throughout the period when the work is being undertaken.

Phase 2 is now shut down.

Site map available here.
