Welcome to NCI

NCI, as Australia’s national research computing service, provides world-class, high-end services to Australia’s researchers, the primary objectives of which are to raise the ambition, impact, and outcomes of Australian research through access to advanced computational and data-intensive methods, support, and high-performance infrastructure.

NCI operates as a formal Collaboration of ANU, CSIRO, the Australian Bureau of Meteorology and Geoscience Australia, together with partnerships with a number of research-intensive universities, supported by the Australian Research Council.

NCI offers comprehensive and integrated high-performance services that cover the gamut of computationally-based research, but with a focus in the environment, and in earth system science in particular. The infrastructure includes a new 1.2 petaflop HPC system, a 3,500 core high-performance compute cloud, persistent disk storage of more than 10 PBytes, and a new purpose-built data centre.

What truly distinguishes NCI is the depth of its engagement with research communities and research organisations, and the collaborative development of research environments/digital laboratories to enhance research ambition and outcomes in areas of international significance and national benefit—all of which is built around an expert team acknowledged for its innovation and well-run services.
