The Midlands Plus consortium have now deployed a new 14,000 core cluster, located in Loughborough. You can hear more about this from your local institution.

QMUL have also recently purchased new hardware and storage with college funding, and are in the process of migrating to it.

With the new Midplus cluster coming online, the old Midplus arrangement has reached end-of-life. As the new QMUL cluster hardware is deployed, the old Midplus cluster is simultaneously being phased out.

This means that HPC services and storage hosted by QMUL are no longer available for Warwick, Nottingham and Birmingham Midplus users.

Note that Minerva, the Parallel computing part of the original Midplus cluster based at Warwick, has already been decommissioned.
