The ARCHER2 quickstart guides provide the minimum information for new users or users transferring from ARCHER. There are two sections available which are meant to be followed in sequence.

  • Quickstart for users: Covers the basics of ARCHER2 useful for all users, including: applying for an account, logging in and transferring data, accessing software and running jobs.
  • Quickstart for developers: Covers additional topics around compiling your own programs on ARCHER2, debugging and profiling. If you are not going to be compiling your own programs on ARCHER2, you do not need to follow this guide.
  • Next steps: Covers the range of support available, getting funding and time on ARCHER2 and the training programme and resources.
