Rocket HPC Funding

Although Rocket is free at the point of use, projects that make a financial contribution to the service will have enhanced access levels.

Costing the use of HPC into your funding proposals should be logged via MyProject Proposals. The Rocket HPC service is listed in the system as a facility and costed per core-hour.  For further information and contacts please see the Research Support webpages.

Please contact the HPC team to:

  • find out more about the priority access scheme
  • let us know that you are applying for funds, so that we can check that Rocket can accommodate your needs
  • register funds for the priority access scheme

Funding for Research Data Storage and Management

The filestores on Rocket are intended only for files in active use and are not backed up.  The University's Research Data Service pages have information about other storage options and costing for research data management.
