NCAR Strategic Capability allocation requests are due September 9

August 14, 2019

NCAR researchers and computational scientists are encouraged to submit requests for NCAR Strategic Capability (NSC) projects to be run on the Cheyenne system. Requests will be accepted through September 9. NSC allocations target large-scale projects lasting one year to a few years that align with NCAR’s scientific priorities and strategic plans.

CISL has available for allocation up to 75 million Cheyenne core-hours and up to 250 TB of GLADE project space (in aggregate) for the Fall 2019 NSC projects. The GLADE space is tied to the one-year duration of the projects. Longer-term storage plans for NSC project data in Campaign Storage or HPSS should be coordinated with the requester's lab(s). The data management plan section in your NSC request document should describe the arrangements made with your lab.

The NSC Panel continues to scrutinize storage requests closely because of the rapidly growing scale of the data generated and constraints on the available storage within the CISL environment. Be sure to review the guidance on the instruction page before preparing your submission.
