Types of allocation

Test project
  • The maximum amount is 10000 node*hours on slim nodes and 2000 node*hours on fat and GPU nodes.
  • The maximum allowed period to use the compute time is 8 months.
  • Requests can be done at any time, and they will be processed as soon as possible.
Regular project
  • This kind of allocation provide access for a period of one year.
  • Requesters are required to have a track-record of research based on the use of HPC platforms.
  • The allocation of the available resources for regular projects follows a schedule of four months’ periods, called “allocation periods”. The three yearly allocation periods are: 1st of March to 30th of June, 1st of July to 31st of October, 1st of November to last day of February.
