Requesting resource hours at IDRIS

Requesting resource hours for IDRIS machines is done via the DARI site which is common to the three national computing centres, CINES, IDRIS and TGCC: www.edari.fr.

The campaign for the submission of requests for the A5 allocation is open. The date limit for the submission of requests is Wednesday, 22 August 2018 at 11 a.m.

This A5 call for projects is for the following allocations:

  • The A5 hours allocation: Accessible to projects having submitted a request for the A3 allocation (or before) and to new projects. These hours are usable during one year, from beginning-November 2018 to end-October 2019.
  • The A4 complementary hours allocation: Accessible to projects having obtained hours in the A4 allocation. These hours will be usable during 6 months, from beginning-November 2018 to end-October 2019.

For more detailed information, see the GENCI explanatory document: Attribution d'heures de calcul.

In addition, throughout the year, you have the possibility of requesting the following resources (using the DARI site www.edari.fr):

  • Supplementary resources as needed (“demandes au fil de l'eau”) for existing projects which have used up their quota of hours during the year (outside of an allocation campaign).
  • Preparatory access (“accès préparatoire”) for projects which do not have an existing project at IDRIS or those which have a project on only one of the computing machines (Turing or Ada).
    After a request for preparatory access is approved, the resources accorded are 50 000 hours on Turing and/or 15 000 hours on Ada.
    Access is granted for a period of 6 months beginning at the account(s) opening.

Complete information for submitting requests for hours allocations is found on the DARI help page.
