Deadline March 26 for large-scale University allocation requests; New instructions apply

March 9, 2018

CISL is now accepting requests from university-based researchers for large-scale allocations for the 5.34-petaflops Cheyenne cluster; submissions are due March 26.

You should be aware that the CHAP is scrutinizing requests for disk and tape storage much more closely  because of the rapidly growing scale of the data generated by many university projects and constraints on the available storage within the CISL environment. Be sure to review the guidance on the updated instruction page before preparing your submission.

Large allocations on Cheyenne are those of more than 400,000 core-hours. CISL accepts requests from university researchers for these large-scale allocations every six months. For updated submission instructions and information regarding available resources, see the CISL HPC Allocations Panel (CHAP) page.

Please contact cislhelp@ucar.edu if you have any questions about this opportunity.
