Resources per team
Teams will be given access to FinisTerrae-III HPC system. FinisTerrae-III is a combined CPU and GPU system
Teams will be granted a maximum of 100,000 CPU core hours
2 TB of persistent storage per team will be available for the duration of the data challenge
SSH + remote desktop (like VNC)
VPN is required
Teams will need to request a user account completing https://altausuarios.cesga.es/
Data cube access
Read-only access to shared folder (like NFS)
SLURM batch system provides access to nodes of the system
Users are able to install software in their user space, and have it available across the compute nodes
Containers are supported with Singularity and udocker.
General documentation available in https://cesga-docs.gitlab.io/ft3-user-guide/index.html
