SNIC Compute Small

SMALL allocations are available via an annual round (1 January - 31 December).
SMALL allocations can be requested at any time during this period via SUPR.

This category targets individual researchers and research groups unfamiliar with HPC resources who would like to build experience and install applications. Also, existing SNIC projects that would like to get acquainted with other compute platforms can use this category.

An application for a SMALL allocation has an upper limit of core hours/month that can be requested, as indicated by the Limit column in the table below.

The table below summarises the SNIC resources that are available for SMALL allocations. The unit used is core-hours/month (ch/m), except for Alvis where the measure is GPU-h/month.
