LUMI offers several computing partitions and capacities. All the capacities are accounted in three types of units, GPU (graphics processing unit) hours, CPU hours (central processing units) and storage hours. All projects on LUMI need to be applied and resourced as a combination of these three units. A potential LUMI user has two routes to apply for the resources.
LUMI resources are divided into national resources administered by the national mechanisms and to the European-wide EuroHPC quota.
One half of the LUMI resources belong to the LUMI consortium countries. This half is divided based on the member countries´ contributions to the LUMI funding. The resources in this pool are allocated through national mechanisms and according to local policies.
Researchers affiliated with an academic research organisation or companies established or located in a LUMI consortium country can apply for these national resources. For more information, select the country.
The other half of the LUMI resources are allocated by the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking. Researchers in European countries, i.e. the EU member states and the associated countries to H2020, including LUMI consortium countries, and companies established or located in a European country, can apply for the resources in this pool. For more information, see ” Users in Europe”.
