The pilot Windows HPC Service that IT Services offered as an alternative to the traditional BlueBEAR HPC Linux service prior to the development of additional BEAR services has now been withdrawn to new users. The BEAR suite of services now offer alternatives to users who require access to powerful Windows-based resources for their research. Any potential users should contact the Research Computing team by using the Contact Us link from the BEAR home page with a brief description of their needs and will then be invited to meet the team to discuss how the BEAR services could help with their research.
It is important to understand that this service is only offered to genuine research projects that need this facility for their research; it does not offer a general Windows desktop service. Such requirements should be directed to the departmental IT support in the first instance.
