Over the coming months, University academics will have access to a new, modern and state-of-the-art research computing infrastructure. Our on-site Balena HPC (High Performance Computer) is being replaced by:
- A highly scalable cloud HPC environment named Janus, and
- A new on-campus HTC (high throughput computing) cluster named Anatra, running software applications that can’t be moved off campus.
In addition academics at Bath will continue to have access to GW4’s regional Isambard HPC service.
