ICHEC provides a number of different mechanisms to access High-Performance Computing (HPC) resources.
Full National Service
Full National Service is the primary mechanism through which researchers gain access to ICHEC High-Performance Computing resources. It provides access to general purpose computing resources, ranging from short "Discovery" projects to large multi-year "Grand Challenge" consortia.
HPC Systems Abroad
A number of access programmes exist whereby Irish based researhers can gain access to very large scale HPC resources in the US and Europe. The systems in question represent some of the world's fastest machines.
