Please note: If you have absolutely no time at all, at least read this one page. Please make sure, the following points are met.
In order to meet the University’s demand for computing resources with a lot of CPUs and memory, LUIS is operating a cluster system as part of the service . All scientists of Leibniz University can use the cluster system for their research free of charge.
Resources of the cluster system are largely a DFG major instrumentation. Therefore rules1) for DFG major instrumentation apply when using the cluster system. Project leaders of your EDV-Project bear responsibility to comply with the DFG rules.
In order to apply for a project, you need to have the formal authority to sign. Students can only get an account while working at an institute.
Once your project has been approved, you as a project leader can log in to the BIAS website and create usernames.
Please note: Each username should reflect the real name of the user by choosing the suffix accordingly.
Note that user accounting on BIAS is not part of the service Scientific Computing and thus not part of the cluster system.
Parts of the cluster system are DFG major instrumentation, thus rules for DFG major instrumentation apply when using the cluster system. Furthermore software licenses are valid for research and teaching only. Accordingly the cluster system must only be used for research and teaching activities.
Currently the cluster system consists of the following compute resources, see table Computing Hardware
Additionally institutes can integrate their own hardware for use within the cluster system in the service called (FCH). This hardware is accessible only to the respective institute during the day, i.e. between eight o’clock in the morning and eight o’clock in the evening. During night-time all cluster users have access to the resources.
If you get directed to a machine that does not fit the name scheme of our main clusters during that time period, it is most likely a FCH participant. For information about having your own hardware in the , please get in touch.
