ShARC will be decommissioned on the 30th of November 2023, after which time users will no longer be able to access that cluster and any jobs running or queueing at that time will be cancelled.

Please see our page of important info about ShARC’s decommissioning.



The latest changes and newly installed software on our clusters can be found at the HPC Changelog microsite.

This is the documentation for Bessemer, one of the University of Sheffield’s High Performance Computing clusters. Bessemer is a ‘capacity’ cluster designed to run compute jobs which will fit on a single node. Bessemer can support jobs requiring up to 40 cores per job - for larger jobs please use Stanage or ShARC.
