BlueBEAR (Linux HPC)

BlueBEAR provides a High Performance Computing (HPC) service that, like the other BEAR services, is free at the point of use to all researchers at the University.

BlueBEAR employs some of the latest technology to deliver fast and efficient processing capacity for researchers while minimizing energy consumption by using direct, on-chip, water cooling. Built on Lenovo’s NeXtScale servers, the new cluster has a number of other notable features, including more cores and memory per node, larger ‘large’ memory nodes and a new automated workload manager, SLURM.

Please use the right hand navigation panel for lots of useful information to support your use of BlueBEAR, including details of the applications we provide and help submitting jobs. All users must register in order to use the service. The Registration page explains the process and provides guidance to get you started.

Finally, we would like to ask for your support in continuing to justify the investment in HPC by acknowledging use of BlueBEAR in your publications (A possible form of words can be found here along with a form to notify us of publication which will allow us to further publicize your research in conjunction with the BlueBEAR service).

If you still have questions or are struggling, see ‘Contact Us’ for the best routes to support.
