Research Infrastructure

IT Services Research Infrastructure Team

The RI Team administer IT infrastructure for computationally-intensive research (CIR), including facilities for parallel and high-throughput computing and data storage. We also administer supporting infrastructure including an SSH gateway for off-campus access, a virtual-desktop service and dedicated virtual machine infrastructure.

Accessing from Off Campus

Working from home / off campus: please read our Working from Home documentation for how to access the CSF (and friends) and storage (RDS) from off-campus.
