How to Apply for Supercomputer Ressources at JSC

Computing Time

People who are employed at universities or research facilities in Germany can apply for computing time on JUWELS and JURECA.

Applicants from Europe but outside of Germany are advised of the possibility to apply at PRACE.

There are different possibilities to apply for computing time (As a first contact to the supercomputer facilities in Jülich it is strongly recommended to apply for preparatory access):

  • Compute Project: If you already have experience in using the supercomputer facilities in Jülich and just need computing time for your scientific project you can apply for a computing time project.
  • Preparatory Access: If you are not yet familiar with the supercomputer facilities in Jülich and need support to test, port and tune your application on our supercomputers, you can apply for a preparatory access. You will get access to a certain number of core-hours and support from the JSC's Simulation Laboratories to test, port and tune your application in order to prepare a regular computing-time project application.
  • Test Account: If you are not yet familiar with the supercomputer facilities in Jülich you can apply for a test account. With the aim to prepare an application for a regular computing time project you can test, port and tune your application on your own on a certain number of core-hours.

Data Projects

Data projects can be projects on their own but also linked to compute projects. Even if they are completely independent from any compute project they are meant for living data, data projects are not just a data repository. Via data projects users can get access to filesystems like $ARCHIVE to exchange data between compute projects or to share community data.

Data projects can be applied via JARDS in a rolling call and will undergo a review process. The run-time for now is one year. Afterwards prolongation is possible.

PIs of compute projects can apply for data resources independently of these compute projects at our application server.
