Computational Ladder 2, 1
- Tier 2: Regional Platforms
- N8-HPC: can run larger multi-node jobs than CSF.
- New regionals: GPUs, KNL and ARM64.
- Batch-based; inflexible services.
- Tier 1: Archer (EPSRC and NERC)
- True HPC — large parallel jobs;
- aimed at computational experts/specialists.
- Batch-based; inflexible service.
