The Tokyo regional analysis center at the International Center for Elementary Particle Physics, the University of Tokyo, is one of the Tier 2 sites for the ATLAS experiment in the Worldwide LHC Computing Grid. The current system has 10,752 CPU cores and 16 PB disk storage. CERN plans the HighLuminosity LHC starting from 2026, which increases the peak luminosity by 5 times compared to the present value at the LHC. A shortage of computing resources for the high-luminosity LHC is expected with the current system. Therefore new ideas to expand the system are necessary. To expand the ATLAS production system at the Tokyo regional analysis center, R&D using external resources has been launched. One kind of external resources is a commercial cloud resource, such as Google Cloud Platform. Another resource is the HighPerformance Computer (HPC) at the University of Tokyo. In this contribution, the current status of the R&D, the systems for these resources, and comparisons of the cost are reported.
