Please read the policies before submitting an application for an HPC account on the cluster.

To apply for a new HPC account or an allocation, send an email to accounts@ccs.uky.edu [The Account Management Portal (AMP) mentioned in the user accounts section is under development, until then use this email for account requests]

For a first time PI to setup an allocation, we will follow-up for additional details such as Project detail, group research activities on the cluster, computational methodologies used, software needs, initial resource request if known(core hrs/storage,GPU,CPU), type of resources(HPC/Cloud/VMs) etc.

Once your allocation is setup and project created, the PI and all members in their project will receive email that will have instructions on how to access the cluster and available resources such as compute, storage etc.


Please note that all HPC resources do not meet the definition of a HIPAA covered entity. Users cannot store PHI(protected health information) on any HPC resources. There is no restriction on the use of de-identified health information.
