The NIG Supercomputer

The National Institute of Genetics (NIG) provides state-of-the-art supercomputer system services equipped with large-scale clustered computers, large-scale memory-sharing computers, and large-capacity high-speed disk drives as a computational infrastructure for life and medical research.


Due to disk space constraints, we do not back up the data in the user home directory. It is the responsibility of the user to back up the data in their own computing environment.

Scheduled maintenance in 2021#

The regular maintenance was held only once this year.

  • [EOM] Nov. 12 (Thu.) -- Nov. 18 (Thu.), 2021 : Scheduled maintenance due to the NIG's statutory inspection of electrical equipment.

Scheduled maintenance in 2022#

Scheduled maintenance for the next fiscal year will be done twice, around the end of June and in November.
