High Performance Compute Cluster - ada.uea.ac.uk


Prior to using the HPC service you will need to register for an account.  We aim to setup all new accounts within 2 working days.


If you wish to connect to ada.uea.ac.uk from offsite you will need to connect to the UEA VPN service first (vpn.uea.ac.uk) and then follow normal ssh connection procedures (putty for windows or ssh in a terminal for linux or mac) to connect to the cluster. 

Further guidance about the UEA VPN service is available from the online wiki.

If you have a requirement to install specific software on the ADA cluster, please complete our

software request form

Please note that whilst we attempt to complete all new application installations within two working weeks, this is not always possible.

The ADA cluster consists of the following components:
