Intersect has formalised a partner-share in Australia’s most powerful supercomputer facility, the National Facility at National Computational Infrastructure (NCI), located at the Australian National University. This makes Intersect one of the largest partners in the National Computational Infrastructure.
Intersect’s members now have access to a portfolio of HPC services beyond their institutional facilities: from the local shoulder facility (McLaren); through the partner share at NCI; and up to the national merit allocation scheme at NCI. The portfolio provides members with access to a wide range of facilities suited to a diversity of research applications via different architectures.
The partner agreement between Intersect and NCI comprises the partner share, access to associated services, such as support, training, and software and an NCI support resource hosted at Intersect for members.
Intersect is in the process of renewing its resource allocation and support procedures in collaboration with NCI.
