Use of the HPCI System with the K computer at its heart
The HPCI System, an innovative shared computational environment responding to versatile computational needs of users, which is configured by connecting supercomputers installed in universities and research institutes all around Japan with high-speed back-bone networks, is used through the HPCI Operation Office.
The Operation Office is located at the Kobe Center of the Research Organization for Information Science and Technology (RIST) to select themes and function as the common contact point for the HPCI for promoting its system. In addition, the RIST provides consultation and technical support as a registered institution of the K computer, which is the core of the HPCI system*1.
Please see the HPCI Portal Site for using computing resources of the HPCI system.
After entering the HPCI Portal Site, please see “What is HPCI?” for the HPCI system and “Call for proposals” for a list of resources provided in the HPCI system, which vary depending on the period of the request for proposals.
