New Platforms User Training - Canterbury

These sessions will be introductory and cover the basics of getting started on NeSI's new platforms - Mahuika and Māui.

Example topics in this new platforms training include:

  • Important changes from the old platforms

  • Accessing the machines

  • Data transfer and file systems

  • Finding installed software

  • Submitting jobs with Slurm

  • Building code


These training materials will also be documented and available on Github and linked to a new User Support portal for reference and self-serve support. An overview of the proposed training curriculum can be found on the NeSI website.


Pre-requisite knowledge:
This training is targeted at existing users who will be moving projects from the old platforms (Pan and Kupe) onto the new platforms (Mahuika and Māui). A base level of knowledge around how to use NeSI HPC resources is expected. This is not an 'Introduction to Using NeSI' session. If you require an introduction to using NeSI for HPC, please contact


Note for Kupe Users:
This training will be very similar to the training Kupe users received last year when they moved from FitzRoy to Kupe. The new Māui platform is very similar to Kupe, so few, if any, changes in operation & environment are expected for Kupe users.
