Trial Use Course (Academic)

 Since FY2005, the Information Technology Center, the University of Tokyo (hereafter, “the Center”) has been providing application software developed by the University and its supercomputer resources to private corporations, through the support of MEXT’s scheme for commissioning and subsidizing projects, “Program on the Common Use of Advanced Research Facilities for Innovation Creation.” With the conclusion of this program, the Center has launched a paying trial use course for corporations since FY2011. At the same time, it also launched a paying trial use course for universities and public organizations. In FY2018, it is providing Reedbush and Oakforest-PACS services.

The trial use course allows users to try out the supercomputer systems and get a sense of using the supercomputers. They may then make the transition to general use. The shift to general use is expected to promote the further use of computer systems.
