How to get an Account

Step1: Get a pIE Account

Before you can gain access to the HPC systems at any of the DSRCs, you must first get an account on the Portal to the Information Environment (commonly referred to as a pIE account). If you do not yet have a pIE account, you can request one by following the instructions found at HPC Centers: Obtaining An Account.

Step 2: Contact your S/AAA

Because of the new Single Visit Request policy, the process of obtaining an account on our HPC resources has been dramatically streamlined. The HPCMP (High Performance Computing Modernization Program) accepts a single Visit Request for all unclassified systems in the program. If you have completed Step 1 (above), you are almost done. Please contact your S/AAA to assist you through the remainder of the account process.
