SNIC Compute Medium
MEDIUM allocations are available via an annual round (1 January - 31 December). MEDIUM allocations can be requested at any time during this period via SUPR.
MEDIUM allocations are normally not granted for projects that have a LARGE allocation.
This category is for allocations up to a maximum size (core hours/month). The maximum size of a MEDIUM allocation varies for each resource. The total size of all MEDIUM allocations granted to you can maximally amount to 150%. For example, 80% of the maximum size of a MEDIUM allocation of one resource and 70% of the maximum size of a MEDIUM allocation of another resource.
- Total 2021: the total number of core hours/month that are available for MEDIUM allocations during 2021.
- Upper limit: the upper limit on a MEDIUM allocation in core hours/month for a particular resource.
The table below summarises the SNIC resources that are available for MEDIUM allocations during 2021. The unit used are core hours per month (ch/m).
