New Zealand’s supercomputing and services facility for research and development.

BlueFern aims to help improve New Zealand's IT skills and research capability and provide infrastructure that contributes to scientific and industrial development.

BlueFern as part of NeSI seeks collaboration among all research organisations. We invite you to explore the experiences and opportunities outlined in our website and to contact us to see how we can help.

BlueFern was established by scientists and engineers to make it easy and convenient for researchers to use world class supercomputers.
