Introduction

Welcome to the HPCx service.

The HPCx service is the UK science community's newest capability computing service, and is operated by EPCC and CCLRC on behalf of the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).

This document is an introduction to the HPCx service, and is intended both to target new users of the IBM eServer 575 system, and to provide a handy reference guide for experienced users.

Electronic and printable copies of the most up to date version of this document are accessible from:

The IBM eServer 575 system Code of Conduct

The IBM eServer 575 system is a multi-user system. Although we try to set it up in such a way that everyone has fair access to the resources available, we depend to a very large extent on the goodwill and cooperation of all the users.

To help with this a Code of Conduct has been drawn up and if you follow it, you can be fairly sure that you are not impeding other people's work. The Code of Conduct is linked from the Policy Documents page:

http://www.hpcx.ac.uk/services/policies/

which also contains links to various other important HPCx policy documents, including Terms and Conditions of Access, Privacy Policy, Charging Model, Capability Incentive Scheme, etc.
