ARE can be accessed at are.nci.org.au
NCI is pleased to announce that the highly requested Internet access capability in the ARE service(Australian Research Environment) is now operational. Jobs running in ARE will now be able to communicate directly with the Internet, facilitating more interactive usage.
ARE supports the full range of Gadi capabilities and high-performance access to the underlying /g/data filesystems. It provides users with a variety of specialised queues to access the GPU-equipped Visualisation nodes, Large memory nodes and a variety of CPU generations based on processing requirements. Read the ARE User Guide to find out more.
NCI projects currently using OOD should migrate their workflows to the ARE environment as soon as possible. Please follow the instructions for copying files from OOD to ARE to complete this migration.
Please note that ARE uses NCI Service Units as its basis for charging the jobs that are run. An allocation of SUs, acquired through merit schemes, partner share or other access mechanism, is required to use ARE.
Please get in touch with NCI at email@example.com if you have any questions.
Any app can be run on any of the queues documented at https://opus.nci.org.au/x/2ABiBQ by typing the queue name into the box on the form; the drop down contains the queues most likely to be appropriate for that app.
