Summer wishes from Sigma2

As vacation time draws closer and we are all heading into a special kind of summer this year due to COVID-19, Sigma2 would like to wish you all the very best for the summer holiday.

We would in particular kindly remind you to queue up jobs on the HPC resources for the upcoming summer-months. Even though we humans go on vacation, our friends Saga, Fram, Stallo and Vilje do not. As for the newest member in the national e-infrastructure family, Betzy, pilot users will be running throughout the summer to help ensure that the machine will be ready for production.

Demand for CPU-time

We expect high demand for CPU time during the last two months of the current allocation period, in August and September respectively. Hence, it is very important that available capacity also is being utilized during the summer months. Therefore, we kindly ask you to make good use of your allocation by submitting an appropriate workload also during summer holidays.

Don't forget to apply for resources

Please remember that the call for resources for period 2020.2, has recently been published. The application deadline is 24 August.
