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).
