What are SHPC Condos?

The CADES Scalable HPC (SHPC) Condos consist of two HPC clusters: one in the ORNL Moderate protection zone (CADES Mod) and one in the ORNL Open protection zone (CADES Open). The clusters are further divided in to “condo units” based on which ORNL research groups purchased their nodes.

All ORNL research and technical staff may request access to the Birthright Condo. The other condos are accessed only by purchase or by approval from their owners.

How Do I Get Started?
