Trial Use Course (University/Research)

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” 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.

After trial use, if users decide to use supercomputer systems in earnest, then they can make the transition to general use. The shift to general use is expected to promote the further use of computer systems.

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