For most researchers the hardware provided by the EUR is sufficient. However, if you need more memory than available on your computer or need to simultaneously run multiple tasks on a large dataset you can apply for High Performance Computing (HPC).
SURF offers the following services:
If you need to decide which infrastructure would be most suitable for your line of research check this page: https://www.surf.nl/en/which-compute-service-for-which-research-question
These services are paid for by the EUR IT department. Researchers that would require a substantial amount of our resources are encouraged to apply for access granted by SURF (and paid for by NWO). More info can be found here: https://www.surf.nl/en/research-ict/apply-for-access-to-compute-services
How to apply
If you need LISA or Snellius, fill in the User request form and sent it to firstname.lastname@example.org for approval. Please specify the service you need, a budget (usually we start with 10.000). In most cases the storage provided should be enough, so there's no need to apply for additional storage.
