We occasionally get approached by commercial customers wanting access to our 
HPC clusters (as well as assistance spec'ing, buying, configuring and 
maintaining them) and we help out where we can (NB: if they want to use 
commercial software they have to bring their own licenses).

But our core business is supporting our academic users at the institutions 
that are members (i.e. owners) of VPAC.
