Research Computing Services


CSD3 is a provider of HPC resources to DiRAC, the STFC supercomputing facility for theoretical modelling and HPC-based research in particle physics, and astrophysics, cosmology, and nuclear physics. Researchers, at the University of Cambridge or other UK academic institutions, can apply for time on CSD3 as one of the DiRAC HPC systems.  For more information see the DiRAC call page

To gain acess to a DiRAC project, both internal and external users of DiRAC resources on the Cambridge Research Computing systems should register with DiRAC SAFE and request login access to Cambridge/CSD3 under the relevant project.
