KNL system on ARCHER - available 20th October as planned

Dear ARCHER Users,

We are pleased to be able to announce that the new KNL system will be available to users from tomorrow morning (10:00 BST, Thu 20 Oct 2016).

This is a novel development system designed to allow experimentation so the configuration and features available may evolve as a result of experience and your suggestions. We encourage you to try the KNL system and welcome your feedback.

Many of you have already requested access to the KNL system and are we today processing these requests. For those of you who have not yet requested access but would like to do so please follow the instructions at:

The user documentation can be found at:

Please note that this is an evolving document and will be updated with additional information as it becomes available.

You may also be interested in two recent KNL virtual tutorials covering the new system. These can be found at:

If you experience any problems, wish to provide feedback or have any questions then please contact the ARCHER helpdesk:

Best regards

The ARCHER Helpdesk Team
