Get resources "for free"

Posted on 22 June 2006

ICHEC and the CosmoGrid project have agreed on a new policy which will result in some "free" resources being made available to ICHEC Class A/B/C projects. The scheme will address three priorities:

  1. to maximise the overall utilisation of ICHEC resources;
  2. to create an incentive to use resources at an early stage of the project;
  3. to ensure that CosmoGrid projects fully avail to resources owned by their project.

The scheme implements a scheduling policy based on fair share, which will facilitate CosmoGrid's access to their share of the resources. See the ICHEC User mailing #23 for further information.
