Research IT Compute Resource Application

Please use this form to apply for resources on the compute clusters hosted at Research IT.

After completion your application will be reviewed by the Research IT team, and you will receive further instruction.

This form will collect information regarding the research you intend to preform with Research IT compute resources. This information is important for the internal accounting procedures at Research IT. Details of this may be published on the Research IT website and in other material.

Which compute cluster do you need access to? If you are unsure, or do not require access to a cluster, then select None.
How much cluster compute time is required? If you are unsure, or do not require access to a cluster, then select N/A.
How much cluster storage space is required? If you are unsure, or do not require access to a cluster, then select N/A.

Please select the amount of resources you require. Each project will be assigned a designated filestorage area which will be valid for the duration of the project. Compute tasks will be assigned to a specific project code and the relevant hours will be deducted from your account. Jobs with insufficient funds, or assigned to an incorrect project will not (or may run with a reuduced priority).

Project filestorage will become invalid after the duration of the project. Users should be aware that this allocated space is not for backup/archival purposes. A small user directory space will be available to all users for essential data. This is backed up for disater-recovery purposes only.
