QCIF allocations available on FlashLite and NCI's Raijin

In addition to allocations available through the National Computational Merit Allocation Scheme (NCMAS), QCIF has purchased a share of time on the Raijin supercomputer at NCI.

This share is made available to researchers at QCIF member universities (UQ, JCU, Griffith, QUT, USQ, CQU and USC) and is a great way for early career researchers to try out their scientific code on Raijin and get a track record on the machine. Track record is an important consideration in assessing NCMAS applications.

Access to high performance computer FlashLite is also available outside of the NCMAS process to QCIF members and FlashLite's other funders, namely CSIRO, Monash University, and The University of Technology, Sydney. Users from these organisations will still need to make a case for needing a machine with the capability of FlashLite.

You can request these services through the QRIScloud website – note you will first need to log in using your AAF credentials (your university username and password).

A portion of FlashLite is available for competitive access to other research institutions via NCMAS.
