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 is core hours per month (ch/m).
