Launch of edge compute service and other RLP news

Bringing Research IT platforms closer to you

Research IT has run popular and successful centralised platforms for many years, such as the Computational Shared Facility (CSF) and Research Data Storage (RDS, aka Isilon). Research IT are now launching their Edge Compute service, bringing fully supported compute and storage platforms closer to you.

This new service will provide the research community with capabilities for computationally/data intensive work where the use of centrally-hosted platforms is impractical, not appropriate or must be augmented with additional functionality.

Webinar: Using the Edge Compute service for your research 

Following the launch of the Edge Compute service, the Research IT team will be hosting a webinar on Thursday 26 November (2:30pm – 3pm) so the research community can learn more about the service.

This webinar will introduce the edge compute service and cover topics such as: 

  • What is edge compute
  • How it can benefit your research
  • How to request access to the service
  • Costs of the service
  • Future developments

There will also be opportunity for open Q&A at the end of the webinar.

If you are unable to make this webinar, it will be recorded and published on the RLP newsletter. You can sign up to the newsletter here:
