Time Again to Submit Proposals to Use ARM Computing Clusters

Published: 19 November 2017
ARM’s new high-performance computing facility integrates multiple levels of computing resources and storage systems.

The call is open again for ARM Climate Research Facility science users to request access to ARM computing clusters.

Go to the Computing Resources web page, and use the Request Access form. Deadline to submit proposals to use the resources is December 18.

If you are planning to submit a proposal to use an ARM cluster, a few considerations:

  • Requests should focus on activities that involve multiple terabytes of ARM data that are prohibitive to download to other computer systems, that require parallel processing of computationally intensive code applied to ARM data sets, or that directly use the Large-Eddy Simulation (LES) ARM Symbiotic Simulation and Observation (LASSO) project.
  • Requests will be reviewed quarterly by the ARM Infrastructure Management Board. Depending on the availability of resources, requests may also undergo scientific peer review.
  • Computational requests should clearly indicate the relevance of the proposed computational activities to the ARM Facility, should describe the ARM data sets to be analyzed, and should explain why ARM computational cluster resources are needed for achieving the science goals.

Responses to proposals submitted by December 18 will go out in January 2018.

For questions, contact Giri Prakash, ARM Data Services and Archive Manager at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
