The NLPL initiative is supported by CSC and Sigma2, the Finnish and Norwegian national e-infrastructure providers, respectively. The project has received computing allocations on the Taito (Finland) and Abel (Norway) superclusters, which can be used by all project members. Additionally, moderate ‘on-line’ storage allocations are provided on both machines (accessible as ‘/projects/nlpl/’ on Abel, and ‘/proj/nlpl/’ on Taito), as well as a more generous storage allocation of 100 terabytes (in mid-2017) on NorStore.
For the time being, there is synchronization of user accounts across countries. Thus, project members need to obtain accounts separately for Abel and Taito.
For Abel, there is an on-line account application form at https://www.metacenter.no/user/application/. Please request association with Notur project NN9447K and NorStore project NS9052K. It will usually take a day or two before account activation is complete, and you will receive status updates by email and text messages. Stephan Oepen (UiO) is the point of contact for these projects.
For Taito, Finnish users can apply on-line, while users from outside of Finland need to fill in, scan, and return an application form. Please follow the instructions by CSC: https://research.csc.fi/accounts-and-projects. Stephan Oepen manages the on-line storage on Taito (‘/proj/nlpl/’), and Martin Matthiesen can help with general issues regarding account creation and computing allocations.
At present (mid-2017), there are different allocation mechanisms for the two systems.
