New MS Windows Computational Resource

Condor

Research IT have developed and supported Linux-based computational resources for many years – both batch/queue based (e.g., the CSF, Condor Pool and also the regional platform, N8 HPC) and interactive (the iCSF), but up until now there has been no viable MS Windows-based service.

Over the last few months Research IT have been developing the Condor service, making many improvements including:  resilient, backed up home-directories; bringing into production new Submitter and Matchmaker nodes; and increasing the always-on resource (aka “backbone”).  As a result of the latter, researchers are now able to access a limited, experimental, MS Windows-based computational resource via Condor.  If you are interested in trying this out, please contact us for access.
