SAFE is a software framework designed to support resource management, accounting, reporting and usage monitoring on advanced computing facilities.

SAFE logo

SAFE comprises a number of modularised components which may function as separate applications, or be assembled to provide end-to-end applications for monitoring resource use on systems. For example, HPC computing clusters, Grids or Clouds.

SAFE provides user administration for all systems at EPCC (ARCHER2, Cirrus and specialised systems like NextGenIO and Fulhame) and also DiRAC and many of the UK Tier-2 HPC systems.


Dr Alan Simpson directs and Kostas Kavoussanakis manages the SAFE service development. The SAFE service is provided and maintained by the SAFE team, led by Dr Stephen Booth.
