NEXCS is the NERC only share of the Met Office Cray XC40 located in Exeter. NEXCS is implemented in the Collaboration Trustzone xcs-c, alongside Monsoon2, and shares much Monsoon2 infrastructure.

Further details on NEXCS and support documentation can be found on the Met Office twiki:


NEXCS provides

  • 4.2% of xcs compute resource
  • 462 TB Lustre disk
  • 10GB/user backed-up home space

Unlike Monsoon2 NEXCS does not have access to MASS and does not provide post-processing facilities.


Requests for NERC project resource on NEXCS should be made through the regular NERC HPC application process.
