Apply for Instant Access to Cirrus

As a pump priming opportunity for new users, Cirrus offers instant access to Cirrus for a limited number of Core-h over a six month period. This mode of access should give new users the opportunity to test Cirrus for their purposes and work towards a fully peer reviewed application, either via a standard grant or via Access to HPC calls. An extension will only be granted in exceptional cases.

Note: Only one Instant Access project is available to each person.

Application Proceedure

You can apply for a maximum of 20,000 Core-h or 800 GPU-h over a six month period to test the Cirrus service for your work.

A Cirrus Instant Access Technical Assessment Form should be completed by you and sent to the Cirrus Helpdesk.

The Cirrus CSE service will evaluate the technical feasibility of the project.

These short projects are not evaluated further, unless an extension is required.
