Why register?

The Cluster Science Archive requires you to be registered to download data. This is partly for statistics, but also because there are two major methods of downloading data from the web GUI depending on the volume of data requested. If the compressed size of the data requested is under 1 GB, it may be downloaded directly from the browser. However, if it is above 1 GB (and below 40 GB), the type of download changes to 'asynchronous', which means that we assemble your data package and email you when it is ready to be collected.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to remain logged in, however your browser can remember your username and password for easy log-in the next time.

If you forget your username, you can recover it using your email address, so it's important to keep your details up-to-date, although we can recover them for you if need be (CSA Helpdesk).
