Solving common problems

EPIC was developed to meet our own requirement for computing resource but we frequently came across people with the same issues as us

User

... We want to run at scale but don’t want to buy our own cluster ...

User

... I want to make use of HPC but don’t think I have the know-how ...

User

... We’re moving simulation to the cloud but don’t want to be tied to a single provider ...

Security

We take security very seriously!

A common concern when using cloud services is security. As well as ensuring that the EPIC infrastructure is secure we do all we can to ensure that we protect your simulation data when you are using EPIC. EPIC makes use of the latest cloud services to maintain a high uptime and service resiliency. We manage the security infrastructure for you, removing complexity from you and maintaining access control to your data. All communication is secured using transport level security, including all data transfers.

  • All data stored within the EU.
  • You remain in control of your data.
  • Managed data staging to the HPC providers.
  • TLS used for all data transfers.
  • Cyber Essentials certified
  • All data removed from remote clusters when jobs complete.
  • Anonymisation of your runs on the remote cluster.
  • All jobs run in an account dedicated to your job. No account sharing.
  • Exclusive node allocation. Resources not shared with other users.
  • Match your provider to your security requirements (EG: filter for ISO27001 certified providers)
