Accounts for the PMACS HPC are provided at no charge; charges are assessed only for the use of the system’s resources, such as compute hours and disk storage.  Once a requestor completes their request form, a PMACS representative will contact you to complete the process. 

The PMACS HPC account requires a PennKey, as the account login name will be the same as the PennKey (though the password will be different).  Users must work with their department administrator if they do not have, or do not know their PennKey.  The PennKey resource page contains additional details regarding the PennKey system. 

Please request an account by sending an e-mail to:  pmacshpc@med.upenn.edu
