Trial Use Course

The Information Technology Center, The University of Tokyo (hereafter, “the Center”) provides “Trial use course” for those who are considering using the supercomputer systems of the Center. Users can try out the supercomputer systems at lower cost than such as “General use” and “Corporate use” or free of charge (only for industrial corporations) and consider whether to use them in earnest, or clarify the problems of their programs. Currently, there are 3 supercomputer systems available: Oakbridge-CX, Oakforest-PACS and Reedbush.

Users can also use Free Trial Course(Formerly known as Trial Use Course (Free Trial)), so please consider using it as well.

The differences between “Trial Use Course” and “Free Trial Course” are as follows.
