ACENET / Compute Canada
ACENET (Atlantic Canada) and Compute Canada (Canada Wide) offer free services to Memorial students in the format of free training on open source coding, and access to supercomputing networks. ACENET’s available supercomputing systems are equivalent to thousands of laptops working as one which allows for more intense simulation, modeling, and computation tasks to be completed easily. By signing up with ACENET you'll have access to these resources, as well as training offered across Canada (at not cost).
