In 2014-2015 STFC conducted a strategic review of its current computing capability and future requirements of its scientific and industrial user communities. These communities include STFC-funded researchers; users of STFC National Facilities; other science communities supported by computing facilities or services hosted by STFC; and clients of the Hartree Centre. The Review covers hardware, data services, software, cyber security, networks and computing professionals. The Review Panel consulted with the users of STFC computing and other stakeholders to develop its recommendations.
The Review recommends actions to meet STFC’s future computing needs and improve efficiency. The next step will be to consider the implications of the recommendations and develop a strategic plan for STFC computing.Download PDF
