Front Offices

Local Front Offices

There are eight Front Offices – one for each university – that take care of their own users. The local Front Office is responsible for any UCloud support users may need.

As a part of the national initiative, the eight universities have set up local Front Offices to provide both HPC and data management support to users at their own university.

The jobs of the front offices are:

  1. To help users get accustomed to using the HPC resources
  2. To provide user support
  3. To help users with data management.

  • Guiding users in existing UCloud apps

  • Reporting system errors to Back Office
