  • Up to 200,000 core hours of compute time
  • Automatic run configuration to ensure highly efficient use of precious compute time.
  • CPU or GPU nodes ar used, depending on the code and data set.
  • Up to 200-fold increase in speed relative to single processor runs*.
  • 150 GB of indefinite storage.
  • Robust, resumable transfer of multi-GB files via Globus.
  • Online support when you encounter problems.
  • Purchase from your grant with a procurement card or purchase order.

*Speed-up depends on the individual code and data set.
