Users in Finland
You can apply for the national LUMI resources either as an academic user affiliated with a Finnish higher-education or research institute or as an industry user from an organization established or located in Finland.
When applying for the Finnish resources, there are four different access modes to choose from:
Regular Access mode, for resource applications with a case to enable progress of science in the domains covered. These applications are expected to be able to justify the need for large allocations in terms of compute time, data storage and support resources because they are significantly contributing to the progress of science in their domain.
- middle size projects more confined to CPUs (LUMI-C), duration fixed 12 months
- max 8 million core-h, 0.2 million GPU-h, 570 000 TiB-h
Benchmark Access mode is meant for users to collect GPU performance data on LUMI in order to document the technical feasibility of their proposals to be submitted to LUMI Extreme Scale Access calls.
- to show readiness for Extreme Scale Access in LUMI-G (cf. PRACE preparatory access), duration fixed 3 months
- max 0.5 million core-h, 0.05 million GPU-h, 22 000 TiB-h
Development Access mode is meant for projects focusing on code and algorithm development and developing a science portal or other infrastructure software components.
- minor projects to develop software for LUMI, duration 1 year, extendable for other years
- max 1 million core-h, 0.1 million GPUh, 90 000 TiB-h
Extreme Scale Access is a high-impact, high-gain innovative research, open to all fields of science justifying the need for the capacity to use extremely large allocations in terms of compute time (especially GPU) and data storage resources.
- largest projects using especially GPUs (LUMI-G), duration fixed 12 months
- 50% of Finnish LUMI GPU resources, 25% of Finnish CPU resources
- 0.5–3 million GPU-h, max 16 million CPU core-h
- calls for projects once a year
