About – EPIC

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


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


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


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

Integrate with EPIC

As well as an easy to used portal, EPIC provides tools and interfaces for you to integrate it into your simulation workflow.

API and Python SDK

EPIC has a RESTful API allowing you to integrate it with existing application quickly and easily. If your current process is based on Python then EPIC also provides the PyEpic SDK, a fully featured Python library that wraps the REST API.


EPIC Cli is a command line tool for accessing EPIC. You can managed your data and jobs directly from the command line with this simple tool. EPIC Cli is Python 3 based and supports Windows, Linux and Mac.


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)
